Cedar Falls Downtown Streetscape Moves Forward with Construction

Downtown Streetscape Social 2

The 2020 Cedar Falls Downtown Streetscape construction project, which will include updating the sidewalk along the downtown Parkade, is set to kick off on March 30, 2020. 

The project is part of a collaborative effort from both the City of Cedar Falls and Community Main Street to help improve walkability and cohesion in the growing Downtown District. It will update and add amenities to the Parkade, including sidewalk replacement, and involves the reconstruction of West 2nd and West 3rd Street between Washington Street and Main Street. These improvements will also take place along the newly constructed blocks of West 2nd and West 3rd Street, as well as East 2nd Street from Main Street to State Street. 

 The construction will not affect business hours for the Downtown District and access to businesses will remain available during the project. 

Construction is scheduled to begin March 30. This will start by closing portions of the east sidewalk between 1st Street and 2nd Street. A sidewalk closure will be required and this will be in effect for approximately eight to ten weeks (depending on weather and COVID-19 guidelines). During this closure, all businesses will have pedestrian access from Main Street; however, the City recommends access through the alley entrances.  

 On April 13, the reconstruction of West 3rd Street will begin by closing the entire block from Washington Street to Main Street. This will require a full road closure which will be in effect ten to twelve weeks (depending on weather and COVID-19 guidelines). Pedestrian access to all buildings on the block will be maintained during this time.


 As the project progresses, the City will continue to keep the community updated. To learn more about the 2020 Downtown Streetscape project, including tentative construction timelines and to sign up for email/text notifications, please visit
