City Notes / Alerts

  •  Highway 13 Road Construction Update
    Posted on 05/29/2020 at 12:46 pm

    Milling of the existing pavement was completed on Wednesday, May 27th per plans, but HMA paving has had to be delayed until the week of June 1st.  As of May 29th, it is planned to pave from the Bridge to Franklin Street on Wednesday, June 3rd pending weather conditions. 

    Stage 6 (Seeley Street Intersection) is expected to take 3 to 4 weeks. The section of North Franklin to be closed is from houses 940/941 on the south end through houses 1012/1009 on the north end. Work will proceed to removals, fire hydrant relocation, storm sewer and then new curb, drives & sidewalks, and paving.  From Stage 6 work will proceed directly into Stage 7 (Acers Street intersection) which will take about 6 weeks.

    The intersection at Seeley and N Franklin was closed on Wednesday, May 27th, and the detour of N Franklin (IA13) was put in place.

    South bound traffic: Head east on Acers, south on New and then west on Clara back to Franklin. No parking will be posted along the entire route.

    North bound traffic: Go east on Prospect, north on Sherman and then west on Acers back to Franklin. No parking will be posted along the entire route.

    The intent of the signed detour is to separate traffic as much as possible and reduce congestion and conflicts with turning movements for the larger vehicles.  The closure at Seeley Street is anticipated to last until the end of June.

    The primary detour of IA 13 using IA3, IA 38 and US 20 will remain in place through stages 6 and 7.  Local detour for Stage 6 is as follows and shown on the attached image.
