Beginning the week of June 20, 2022, the contractor will begin the asphalt portion of the work on Elmwood Avenue. This construction process will take approximately two (2) weeks (weather permitting). During most of that time frame, the roadway will be fully open to vehicular traffic. The construction schedule is as follows:
- Taper Milling – Planned for 6/21/22 (Tuesday)
The asphalt overlay will add some thickness to the current pavement. To blend this height back into the adjacent intersections, a taper mill will take place. The contractor will grind the ends of the restoration area in advance of the base pavement. The roadway will remain open to vehicular traffic during this step.
The base will be placed in one day and may be driven on soon thereafter. This step is currently planned for Thursday, June 23 (weather permitting). During this placement, no access will be allowed on the street or to driveways. The contractor will post “No Parking” signs along the street prior to the start of construction. Once these are posted please be sure to relocate your vehicles out of your driveway if impacted.
- Surface Pavement (Asphalt)
Surface paving will take place in one day the following week and may be driven on soon thereafter. During this placement, no access will be allowed on the street or to driveways.
Trash pickup locations have been identified on the below map of the closure area. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ben Claypool at (319)-243-2704 or Benjamin.Claypool@cedarfalls.com.
