Despite sustained high temperatures, work continued smoothly in the Ped Mall Improvements Project last week. 

From the playground, east to the west entry into the Iowa City Public Library, PCC sub slab was installed. Work continued on the planter walls and earthwork for the PCC slab.

Next week, PCC sub slab will be placed at the east end along with the installation of soil within the finished planters. On the west end, placement of the story wall foundation will continue. The story wall on the west end of the Ped Mall will feature the work of Iowa City poet Marvin Bell. Work on installing light pole footings and conduits will also begin. 

The next Ped Mall business meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 26, 2019, in Meeting Room D at the Iowa City Public Library.
