    MUSCATINE, Iowa – Mulberry Avenue is now closed between the #1 alley and 2nd Street with the closure expected to move up to 3rd Street Tuesday (Jan. 7) or Wednesday (Jan. 8). The traffic detour for the construction of the roundabout at 2nd Street and Mulberry Avenue is now in effect.

    Truck traffic heading east on Mississippi Drive will be detoured onto Iowa Avenue, to 5th Street, and down to Oak between returning to 2nd Street. The reverse will be in effect for truck traffic heading west (2nd Street to Oak to 5th Street to Iowa to Mississippi Drive).

    To ensure the safety of construction workers and the public, drivers are urged to find alternate routes when possible, use caution when traveling in or around the construction area, and pay attention to traffic control signs. The work will continue as weather permits.

    The $2.1 million project was awarded to Heuer Construction on August 15, 2019, but actual construction was delayed in order to keep the intersection open for Downtown Muscatine holiday shoppers. Project completion is anticipated for Spring 2020.

    The underground work will install a new storm sewer line on Mulberry from the No. 1 Alley to the 3rd Street intersection and an electrical duct bank that will complete the connection from the No. 1 Alley to the intersection of 2nd Street and Orange Street.

    The roundabout is the final segment of the Mississippi Drive Corridor Reconstruction Project and will complete the reconstruction of the roadway from Broadway to the Mad Creek bridge on 2nd Street.
