The City of Cedar Falls is hosting a streetscape and road construction informational meeting on Thursday, November 7, from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
All members of the public are welcome to attend this informational meeting; however, business and property owners adjacent to the construction area for 2020 are particularly encouraged to be present.
Construction for 2020 will include the removal and rebuilding of West 3rd Street (Main to Washington), the removal and rebuilding of West 2nd Street (Main to Washington), Parkade 100 and 200 block brick sidewalk removal and replacement, as well as East 2nd Street concrete sidewalk removal and replacement with brick.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 PM with an overview of the project, including the timing of various parts of the project and property/business access. Following the overview, attendees will have the opportunity to view maps of the area, ask questions, and participate in one-on-one discussions with city staff.
About The Streetscape Construction Project
The City teamed up with Community Main Street and Cedar Falls Utilities in 2015 to develop the streetscape plan. These improvements were help made possible by a grant from the Black Hawk County Gaming Commission, a fundraising campaign from Community Main Street, CFU and City.
The project is comprised of multiple improvements to the expanding downtown district. This includes the previous reconstruction of State Street and 6th Street. Reconstruction of W. 2nd and W. 3rd (Main to Washington) is now in the works. Alongside that, replacement of the Parkade bricks is planned to kick off in 2020, starting in the 100 and 200 blocks. Parkade replacement will continue south in 2021 and 2022. Decorative lights and “hubs” (brick area with bench, trash can & bike rack) along Washington, State and 6th St. are also part of the project.
