Start of Construction: West 27th Street Reconstruction

Beginning Tuesday, May 31, 2022, the City's contractor, PCI, will be starting Phase I of the West 27th Street Reconstruction Project. This project is anticipated to be a two-year project with three significant stages. Below is a brief description of the work at each phase:

  • Phase I – West 27th Street reconstruction from East of Panther Parkway to The Quarters at Cedar Falls (East of Greenhill Road)
  • Phase II – Greenhill Road and 27th Street roundabout improvements and also Hudson Road signal and lane improvements
  • Phase III – West 27th Street reconstruction west of Greenhill Road in front of new High School with two roundabouts improvements

Phase I work will consist of removal of pavement, placement of underground utilities, and repaving operations. Work for this phase is anticipated to take two months, depending on the weather. For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area.

All University of Northern Iowa (UNI) parking lots will remain open with alternative access points. Those wishing to park in the 27th Street Parking Lot and the South Art Lot located on the south side of 27th Street may do so from access on Panther Parkway from 31st Street. Those wishing to park in the West Dome Lot and the South Dome Lot may do so from access on Panther Parkway from 22nd Street. Phase I work is anticipated to be complete prior to the first home UNI football game for full access to parking lots and Panther Parkway.

The UNI Recycling Facility will remain open. Citizens can access the roll-off container facility at UNI's West 27th Street Lot by taking Hudson Road to West 31st Street to Panther Parkway. They can exit following the same route.
