Beginning September 7, 2021, at noon, the Iowa DOT’s contractor, PCI, will be paving the last center turn lane section on W. 1st Street/HWY 57 between Highland Drive and Francis Street. In order for the contractor to begin, a temporary closure of the center lane will be required. East and Westbound traffic will be shifted to the outside lanes. Turning restrictions will be in place for Westbound W. 1st Street/HWY 57 traffic and Northbound Hudson Road traffic. A detour will be established utilizing W. 12th Street, Union Road, and W. 1st Street/HWY 57. The lane closure for this phase will be in effect for approximately three days, depending on the weather.
After the paving of the center turn lanes has been completed, the head-to-head traffic pattern will go back into effect on the southern lanes of W. 1st Street as it previously was.
