Beginning Wednesday, May 31, the City's contractor, PCI, will start new traffic signal-related work at the West 27th Street and Hudson Road intersection. In order for the contractor to begin, lane closures on Hudson Road and West 27th Street will be required. Sidewalk and trail connections will be impacted at the intersection. At least one east-west pedestrian Hudson Road crossing will be maintained for those accessing the University of Northern Iowa's South Art Lot and the 27th Street Lot.
During this time, crews will be working to make storm sewer connections, new trail and sidewalk connections to the intersection, installation of a new traffic signal, and lane widening at the intersection. The lane closures for this phase will be in effect for approximately three (3) months, depending on the weather. All work at this intersection will be complete prior to the start of the fall semester.
For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth in the closed lanes. Below is a map of the closure area highlighted. If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction, please contact Matthew Tolan at 319-268-5164 or by email at email@example.com.
