Construction is scheduled to begin in April. The plan involves lowering First Avenue while raising the railroad at the current at-grade crossing of the Iowa Interstate Railroad. The City of Iowa City has designated funds, along with support from federal funding, to design and construct the separation between the railroad and vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Included in this project will be a new railroad bridge, street paving, water main improvements and other related work.
