This project was awarded to All American Concrete of West Liberty, Iowa, on July 20, 2017, in the amount of $403,889.10.  The project will begin Monday, Aug. 14, 2017, and consists of removing and replacing existing concrete on Cleveland Street from Park Avenue to 2nd Avenue. There will be access provided to businesses at all times. However, there may be some delays. Please be patient. Contract completion date is September 30, 2017. Contact City of Muscatine Public Works at 263-8933 if you have any questions. Pictured below is a guide to the four phases of the project. However, the schedule is not cast in concrete and is contingent upon the requirements of the contractor. The phases may change as needed.

Phases Of Construction

Update as of October 6, 2017:

The third phase of the Cleveland Street Reconstruction Project is nearly complete with three drives poured on Friday along with some additional curb and gutter work. The third section will be reopened once it has cured and is tested. The reopening will complete the reconstruction from Park Avenue to west of Coventry Lane and mark the beginning of the final phase of the reconstruction which will replace the concrete from the end of the third phase to 2nd Avenue. That work will begin next week. All-American Concrete and project managers are hopeful that the final section can be completed next week.


West Hill Sewer Separation Project - Phase 3


Phase 3 project was awarded on April 16, 2015 to Hagerty Earthworks, LLC of Muscatine, Iowa in the amount of $4,988,688.00.  

Update as of October 6, 2017:  

The West Hill Sewer Separation Project is quickly moving forward with project managers announcing Friday (Oct. 6) that the intersection of Iowa Avenue and 5th Street will be closed starting Tuesday, Oct. 10, as work moves into that intersection. Haggerty Earthworks has completed underground work on East 5th Street from Cedar Street through the Sycamore Street intersection and are working towards Iowa Avenue.

 

Sewer line work should be completed next week with the storm sewer to follow right behind. As the weather permits, prepping for paving of East 5th from Sycamore to the Iowa Avenue intersection will take place as sewer work is completed.

 

Haggerty Earthworks has prepped East 5th Street from Cedar to the Sycamore intersection for paving which should begin next week. Heuer Construction, the paving contractor, is completing work in the 4th Street Park area which is expected to be opened for traffic sometime next week.

 

The last part of the sewer work in the 5th Street area will involve the closure of Sycamore Street from East 5th to the #5 alley.
