    MUSCATINE, Iowa – Work will begin on April 13, weather permitting, on the 2nd Street Streetscape Project according to City of Muscatine project managers. A public information meeting was planned for Wednesday (March 25) but that meeting was cancelled in response to Iowa Department of Public Health guidelines to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    The 2nd Street Streetscape Project is comprised of sidewalk, roadway, utility, and streetscape construction on 2nd Street from Mulberry Avenue to Pine Street. Construction primarily includes pavement removal, excavation, concrete sidewalks, concrete roadway paving, underground utility improvements, concrete pavers, and streetscape amenities.

    The Muscatine City Council awarded the $2.9 million contract for the 2nd Street Streetscape Project to KE Flatwork, Inc., of Elbridge, Iowa, at the February 6, 2020, City Council meeting. KE Flatwork, Inc., was the lowest of four bidders for the two-year project.

    The work will be completed block by block in six stages over the two-year construction timeline to minimize the impact on businesses and residents. The first stage of work will occur on 2nd Street from west of Walnut to east of Sycamore and include replacement of storm and sanitary sewer. Residents and businesses in this block will be contacted by the contractor and City project managers with a timeline on when and how they will be impacted. Work on this block is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.

    The first year of the two-year project will also include work on 2nd Street from east of Sycamore to east of Iowa starting July 6, 2020, and on 2nd Street from west of Iowa to east of Chestnut starting September 3. All dates are subject to change based on weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances. The first year of the project is scheduled to wrap up on October 1.

    Additional information can be found on the 2nd Street Streetscape Project page on the City of Muscatine website.
