PHASE 1 CONSTRUCTION OF UNIVERSITY AVENUE IS WRAPPING UP This spring crews returned to the area between Grove Street and McClain Drive to complete the Waterloo Road intersection, trails, sidewalks, installing trees and other plants, seeding, brick pavers, bus shelters, and building the center of the roundabouts. The Waterloo Road/University Avenue intersection is now functioning as a roundabout, and the Black Hawk Village entrance is open again. Work on the north frontage road (Famous Dave’s to Clarion Inn) will also be completed this summer. Phase 2 of the University Avenue Reconstruction Project is in full swing on either end of this stretch from McClain Drive to Midway Drive. New pavement has been placed from McClain Drive to Rownd Street, and old pavement was removed at the east end of the project between Cedar Heights Drive and Midway Drive. By the end of July, it is anticipated traffic will switch to new pavement on the south side at both ends of the project. Work will then focus on the north side by tearing out the deteriorated pavement, replacing the water main and storm sewer, and pouring a new concrete roadway. The Cedar Heights Drive/University Avenue intersection roundabout is anticipated to be completed late this fall; 2017 construction is expected to continue through November. Regular construction updates are posted on the University Avenue project website at and on Channel 15. You may sign up for direct e-mail notifications as well. City Staff is available for presentations about this project or roundabout driving education. Please contact Stephanie Houk Sheetz, Director of Community Development, at (319) 268-5151.
