2020 Construction Phase 1 Begins

1st Street Phase 1 - Closure Map


Beginning, Monday, March 16th, 2020, the Iowa DOT’s contractor will be starting the first phase of 2020 construction by closing down N College Street at the intersection of W 1st Street/HWY 57. In order for the contractor to begin, a full closure of N College Street intersection will be required. During this time, additional lane closures will be placed for private and public utility-related work on the south side of W 1st Street/HWY 57 between Walnut Street and Ellen Street. East and Westbound traffic will be maintained throughout construction. The road closure for this phase will be in effect for two (2) weeks, depending on the weather. For safety’s sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.

After completion of the N College Street intersection work, starting as soon as Monday, March 30th, 2020, the Iowa DOT’s contractor will start the second phase of 2020 construction by removing the southern half of pavement on W. 1st Street/HWY 57 between Walnut Street and Ellen Street for underground utility related work. In order for the contractor to begin the second phase, lane closures will be required as they work towards the west. East and Westbound traffic will be maintained throughout construction.

There is a public meeting on Thursday, March 12th, 2020 at 5:30 pm in the City Hall Council Chambers, 220 Clay Street. Iowa DOT officials and City staff will be available to review design requirements, expectations of the project, construction phasing, and the 2020 construction timeline. A large plan-view map will also be available for viewing for questions and answers by Iowa DOT and City officials. 

If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction, please contact Ron Loecher with the Iowa DOT at 641-394-3161 or Ron.Loecher@iowadot.us
