The City of Cedar Falls has awarded the 2020 Streets Project to Peterson Contractors, Inc (PCI) of Reinbeck, Iowa. This project has three full street reconstructions and eight overlay rehabilitations with curb/gutter, etc. The project will be funded by Local Option Sales Tax, Street Construction Fund, GO 2020, Sanitary Sewer Rental Fund and Cedar Falls Utilities funding sources.
Beginning, Monday, April 27th, 2020, the contractor will begin reconstruction work on the west half of Lilac Drive between McClain Dr and Rownd St. This is the first of two phases. This work requires a full road closure. The closure is expected to last ten (10) weeks and be complete by June 29, 2020. For safety’s sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street.
During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portion of adjacent McClain Drive or the open section of Lilac Lane during this stage of the street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.
Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.
Also during the road closure, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated to the adjacent side streets. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.
