To facilitate work associated with the First Avenue Grade Separation Project, Mall Drive is closed at its intersection with First Avenue. Access to Mall Drive will be available via Lower Muscatine Road, and access to businesses along Mall Drive will be maintained during construction. This work is expected to last an extended period of time. An updated schedule will be provided as work progresses and more information is available.

Motorists are to take note of this construction and to allow extra travel time as delays may occur.  As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
