MUSCATINE, Iowa – Work on the West Side Trail will resume on Monday, March 2, 2020, with lane restrictions implemented during construction work hours. Two-way traffic will be maintained but lanes will be restricted and parking will not be permitted in the work areas.
Heuer Construction anticipates starting work on the North Houser Street segment from Lucas to Allen Street on March 2. The contractor will use the same traffic control format as they did on the Houser Hill segment last summer, keeping two lanes of travel but restricting those lanes to the eastern two-thirds of the street during working hours.
The lane restrictions will be lifted after working hours but drivers are urged to use caution and be alert for traffic cones when driving in the area especially during night time hours.
Work will also be resuming in March on the North Houser Street segment from Hershey to Lucas. Lane restrictions similar to last summer will again be used as retaining walls are installed, additional concrete work is completed, and the area is backfilled with top soil and landscaped.
Drivers are urged to watch for traffic control devices when in the area or find alternate routes of travel during the construction process. Please slow down if you are in this area and watch out for construction workers.
The final segment on North Houser Street (Allen Street to Crossroads, Inc.) will be completed after the Lucas to Allen Street segment is completed.
All work is weather dependent.
