Construction Projects Close Two Cedar Falls Streets
Reconstruction work is getting underway on a pair of city streets in Cedar Falls.
According to city officials, segments of W. 4th St. and South Lawn Road are both scheduled to be closed for up to eight weeks while workers replace the pavement. The duration of the closures is dependent on the weather.
The W. 4th St. project was scheduled to begin Wednesday (April 27, 2016). Contractors have been hired to rebuild a portion of the street between Cedar Crest and Barnett Drives. The road -- including the intersection at Cedar Crest -- will be closed for the next six to seven weeks.
A similar project is scheduled to start Thursday (April 28) on small segment of South Lawn Road behind Southdale Elementary School. A roughly two-block area will be closed between Bergstrom and Bonita Blvds. for pavement replacement. The section of South Lawn where the road work is being done will be closed for seven to eight weeks, as will the Stanwood Dr. intersection.
The projects on South Hill Road and W. 4th St. are small, in comparison, to the major road work that's currently taking place on University Ave. in Cedar Falls. The process to build roundabouts and reduce traffic lanes on the former U.S. Highway 218 corridor shifted into high gear on Monday.
