Main Street Reconstruction Project

Beginning April 3, the contractor will start working on the Main Street Reconstruction project. In order for the contractor to begin the work, a full road closure will be required. The work will begin in two locations: Main Street from 6th Street to 9th Street and Main Street from the south side of the 18th Street intersection to 21st Street. The duration of these closures will be approximately 12 weeks and the boundaries of each closure will be modified as the contractor's work progresses (i.e. rolling closures). During the closure, the primary detour routes will be signed for College Street to the west and Highway 27/58 to the east.

Olive Street Box Culvert

Location: Olive Street (Between 20th and 21st Street) | Active Closures/Detours: Olive Street Bridge Closed and Pettersen Plaza Closed

For the week of April 3, the City's contractor, PCI, will continue with box culvert-related work by working on the end sections and the required retaining wall. Work is dependent on weather and water elevations on Dry Run Creek. Other crews will be working on backfilling operations and preparing for plaza-related work. 

West 27th Street Reconstruction

Location: West 27th Street between the high school and Hudon Road | Active Closures/Detours: West 27th Street

For the Week of April 3, PCI will start paving operations at the Greenhill and West 27th Street intersection. Grading and underground utility crews will start to move westerly during the current paving operations to work ahead for the tie-ins required at the new high school site entrances on West 27th Street.

West Viking Industrial Park Expansion (Phase I)

Location: West Viking Industrial Park

Starting April 3, PCI will be starting the West Viking Industrial Park Expansion project back up with paving operations at intersections and associated grading operations. Other crews will be working on the new Technology Parkway extension to the west with underground utility placement and grading. 

US 218 and IA 27 Interchange Project

Location: US 218/IA27/IA57/IA58 Interchange | Active Closures/Detours: Lane reduction and SB IA 58 ramp closed

Starting on April 3, Owen Contracting will be starting the US 218 ramp interchange project with work associated on the northern shoulders of US 218 and IA 57 ramps. During this initial phase, southbound IA 58 exit ramp will be closed and detoured utilizing the Lone Tree Road exit and entrance ramps on 218. 

Please note, this is an Iowa DOT project. For questions or concerns on this project, please contact Ron Loecher with the Iowa DOT at 641-394-3161 and

IA 58 and Ridgeway Reconstruction 

Location: IA 58 between US 20 and Viking Road | Active Closures/Detours: Single lane closure on IA 58 south of Viking Road

Starting on April 3, PCI will be starting the IA 58 and Ridgeway reconstruction project by installing a cross-over structure to be utilized during the bulk of construction. This cross-over structure will result in lane closures along IA 58 south of Viking Road. In the following weeks after the cross-over is installed, crews will close down the west side of the US 20 and IA 58 interchange south of Ridgeway Avenue. During construction, access to Ridgeway Avenue from IA 58 will be maintained. An overall detour for the project will be established utilizing Viking Road and Hudson Road.

Please note, this is an Iowa DOT project. For questions or concerns on this project, please contact Ron Loecher with the Iowa DOT at 641-394-3161 and
