The City of Cedar Falls has awarded the 2020 Streets Project to Peterson Contractors, Inc (PCI) of Reinbeck, Iowa. This project has three full street reconstructions and eight overlay rehabilitations with curb/gutter, etc. The project will be funded by Local Option Sales Tax, Street Construction Fund, GO 2020, Sanitary Sewer Rental Fund and Cedar Falls Utilities funding sources.
Beginning, Wednesday, April 29th, 2020, the contractor will begin rehabilitation work on W 11th St by closing W 11th St from College St to the west property line of 1019 W 11th St. This is the first of two phases. This work requires a full road closure due to curb and gutter replacement and a mill and overlay of the street. The closure is expected to last six (6) weeks and be complete by July 1, 2020. For safety’s sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. Attached you will find a map with the closure area highlighted.
During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portion of W 11th St, Pearl St or College St during this stage of the street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.
Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.
Postal Service and mailboxes should not be impacted during this closure as there are no rural type mailboxes.
