[ARCHIVED] W. 1st St./HWY 57 Reconstruction

1st Street Phase 2 Closure map

Beginning, Monday, May 18, 2020, the Iowa DOT’s contractor, PCI, will be continuing with construction by closing the southern half of the Division Street intersection for underground utility related work. In order for the contractor to begin, a full closure of the southern lanes and the intersection will be required. East and Westbound head-to-head traffic will be maintained throughout construction. The lane closure for this phase will be in effect for approximately six weeks, depending on the weather. For safety’s sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. 

During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area. Residents located on the south side of W. 1st St./HWY 57 can place their collection carts on the open portion of adjacent Division Street, Catherine St., or in the alleys between Francis Street and Division Street 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 for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.

Also during the road closure, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated to the adjacent side streets. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.

If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction, please contact Ron Loecher with the Iowa DOT listed here: Ron Loecher, PE, Resident Engineer, 641-394-3161, Ron.Loecher@iowadot.us
