Season's Greetings Cedar Falls community. The first year of construction is almost complete. With the warm winter weather this year, the contractor has been able to work into December and is making substantial progress. Currently the contractor is wrapping up concrete paving operations at Seerley Boulevard and finish grading work. By the end of the year, the first major milestone for the project will be achieved with all the planned work for Phase 1 and Phase 2 complete and the Main Street corridor will re-open to traffic. And with that year 1 will be in the books. Construction on Phase 3 of the project will begin in the Spring of 2024 as soon as weather permits. Refer to the "Resources" section of the website to see the Project Staging Map showing the project phases.
Feel free to submit questions or comments to the project team or sign up for notifications. Look for updates early next year on the 2024 construction and traffic impacts.
Happy Holidays and thanks for all your patience and interest as work continues to transform the Main Street corridor.
Greetings to the Cedar Falls community. As summer winds down, the contractor continues to make progress on the project. The underground utility work in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project are complete, as is substantial completion of the new box culvert at Seerley Boulevard.
