MUSCATINE, Iowa – Mississippi Drive will be closed to through traffic from Pine to Broadway for two days starting Thursday, September 6. The closure will be maintained from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, and Friday, Sept. 7, with the street opened up to traffic during the overnight hours on Thursday.
Heritage Landscaping will be conducting maintenance of the median flower beds and finish plantings from Lynn Street to Broadway during this time period. Muscatine Power & Water (MPW) will also be onsite for two projects as they will install a pole on the river side of Mississippi Drive opposite Contrary Brewing and also trench in conduit from Pine to Broadway. MPW plans to extend the conduit to the Hershey Lift Station at a later date but that will not require closing Mississippi Drive.
The closure is weather dependent and may be changed. Drivers are urged to use the established detour (Main Street to 8th Street to Iowa Avenue) and avoid the area during working hours.
