MUSCATINE, Iowa – Lane restrictions will continue next week at the intersection of East 2nd and Cypress as Tri-City Electric completes the installation of the new traffic signals as part of the Park Avenue 4-to-3 Lane Conversion Project. The lane restrictions will start at 7 a.m. Monday, March 8, and continue through Friday, March 12, weather permitting.

 

The inside lanes (closest to the curb) will be closed to traffic as Tri-City Electric completes the installation, adjustment, and powering up of the traffic signals. Once installed the signals will be put in a flashing red mode until the entire project is completed later this summer.

 

Full depth patching of Park Avenue from Washington to 2nd Street is expected to begin March 15, weather permitting. An exact schedule and lane restrictions will be announced closer to the actual start date.

 

The Park Avenue 4-to-3 Lane Conversion Project includes Park Avenue from Harrison to East 2nd Street and East 2nd Street from Park Avenue to Cypress Street. The proposed improvements focus specifically on safety, including traffic lane reconfiguration that would change the road from four lanes (two operating in each direction) to three lanes (one lane in each direction and a center two-way, left turn lane). Full depth patching, milling, an asphalt overlay, and new sidewalk ramps are also part of the project.

 

The entire project is expected to be completed by Fall 2021, weather permitting.
