MUSCATINE, Iowa – One lane of Mississippi Drive will be closed to traffic on Wednesday (Nov. 7) and Thursday (Nov. 8) due to underground utility work by KE Flatwork, Inc., and Muscatine Power & Water (MPW). The eastbound (river side) lane of Mississippi Drive from Broadway to Pine Street will be closed to traffic starting at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and continue through the end of work on Thursday.
KE Flatwork will be repairing underground conduit that will allow MPW to pull cable through this stretch. The work is needed so that the overhead lines and poles can be removed from along the corridor. Once the cabling is complete and tested, the poles and overhead lines will be removed along Mississippi Drive giving citizens and visitors a better view of Riverside Park.
