Beginning Monday, April 18, 2022, the contractor will begin Stage 1 reconstruction of West 18th Street from the intersection of Drury Lane and West 18th Street west past the intersection of Merner Avenue and West 18th Street. In order for the contractor to begin pavement removal, a full road closure will be required. The road closure will be in effect for up to eight (8) weeks, depending on the weather. The first stage will begin immediately on April 18 and Phase 2 (shown as the orange box on the map below) will begin after Stage 1 is reopened to traffic. The planned work for this street includes removal of the existing pavement, and driveway approaches, installation of new water main and storm sewer, new concrete pavement and driveway approaches, and sod from the back of the new curb to the front edge of the sidewalk.
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.
During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area of West 18th Street. Residents can place their collection carts on either end of the street closure shown with the yellow boxes on the map. 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 pick up. Yard waste may also be taken to the Transfer Station (1524 State Street) in any type of container. View Transfer Station hours and information at https://www.cedarfalls.com/107/Transfer-Station. If your mailbox is affixed to your home, mail delivery will not be impacted.
