Work on Houser Street will continue for the next 2-3 weeks with work also scheduled to begin on Frontage Road Tuesday

Muscatine, IOWA – According to the city officials, the work on Houser Street will continue as the contractor repairs the broken pavement in multiple phases to minimize traffic control issues.

City officials also said that the duration of work is weather dependent.

The 2021-2022 Full-Depth Patching Project had a late start due to funding concerns that pushed the bid process into the fall.

The $440,800 contract was awarded to Heuer Construction on October 5, 2021, but actual work was delayed until April due to weather and logistic concerns.

All work is to be completed by early June, officials said.

The contractor is also scheduled to also begin work on Frontage Road starting Tuesday.

Frontage Road will be closed to all traffic from Ford Avenue to the LPI Loans entrance, officials said.

Once that section is completed, full depth patching will take place from LPI Loans to Cleveland Street.

This is a developing story and it will be updated as new information become available.
