The intersection of Iowa Avenue and 3rd Street will be closed to traffic starting Wednesday, June 29, for street repairs. The intersection will be closed at least through the end of the day on Friday, July 1, weather permitting, or Saturday, July 2.

Iowa Avenue traffic will be detoured at 4th and 2nd streets to either 4th Street or Mississippi Drive and then to either Sycamore or Chestnut streets. Traffic on 3rd Street will be able to use Sycamore and Chestnut streets to either Mississippi Drive, 2nd Street, or 4th Street to bypass the closure.

The City of Muscatine and the Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, wear seat belts, and be aware of construction workers. Use an alternate route if possible.
