Main Street Reconstruction

Cedar Falls is excited to launch the Main Street Reconstruction Project! The project, located between Seerley Boulevard and 6th Street, will include a variety of enhancements to benefit our community including improved pavement conditions, increased safety, bicycle and pedestrian mobility, improved traffic flow, and economic growth and revitalization support. 

Stay updated on the progress by signing up for email/text notifications at www.cedarfalls.com/notifyme and selecting "Main Street Reconstruction" from the list of options.

About the Project

The project will include new pavement, on-street bike lanes, sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping, as well as upgrades to aging underground utilities (storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main). All this, while maintaining traffic and access to businesses throughout construction.

The City of Cedar Falls Public Works Department has contracted Foth to provide design services for the Main Street Reconstruction project. During the design process, our team will keep the public informed through a variety of engagement activities. With design anticipated to be complete in the summer of 2022 and construction scheduled to begin in the spring of 2023, updates, videos, concepts, FAQs, and more will be shared throughout the project’s life cycle.

The City and Foth have developed a project website to serve as the primary source for all project-related information. You can track progress, learn about the project, and submit questions or comments at www.cedarfallsmainstreetproject.com.

On the website you will find:

• Updates
