Beginning Monday, August 15, 2016, Muscatine Avenue between S. First Avenue and Iowa Avenue will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate pavement maintenance and repair. This project is a moving operation and the lane reduction will be kept localized to a couple of blocks at a time to reduce the impact to traffic. Residential access will remain open during the construction. Work is anticipated to be completed by Tuesday, August 16.

Motorists should take note of this construction and allow extra travel time as delays may occur. Caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
