Another U.S. 63 Construction Project Beginning In Waterloo
Motorists traveling on U.S. Highway 63 in Waterloo can expect another traffic obstacle, starting Tuesday (Nov. 6, 2018).
Logan Ave. at the Canadian National Railway (CN) crossing will close at 8 AM as part of the on-going U.S. 63 reconstruction project, officials with the Iowa Department of Transportation said. A detour will be in effect through late January, weather permitting.
The project will include placement and removal of a temporary rail detour, utility work, and installation of a new crossing. During construction, motorists will be detoured around the work zone using Logan Ave. and Edwards, Lincoln and Conger streets.
The railroad crossing work is connected to a larger construction project, in the same area, that's scheduled to be completed in Nov. 2019. The highway is closed right now between Franklin and Newell/Conger streets, where crews are building a bridge to carry U.S. 63 traffic over the current Canadian National railroad overpass and replacing the pedestrian bridge with an underpass.
