Lane reductions on U.S. 6 in Coralville to begin Monday night
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Traffic on U.S. 6 will be reduced to one lane in each direction between 12 th Avenue and 22 nd Avenue in Coralville, beginning at 7 p.m., March 31, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) Cedar Rapids Field Office.
Lane closures in both eastbound and westbound U.S. 6 will be used to allow for pavement patching. The Iowa DOT is allowing only nighttime lane closures starting at 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. during the week. No lane closures will be allowed from 6 a.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Sunday. Patching is scheduled for four weeks.
After the patching phase of this project is complete in late April, the road way will be restriped to a three-lane roadway, including a center turn lane. This traffic control will allow the roadway to be widened on the south side of U.S. 6 first. Traffic will be switched later in the season to widen the roadway on the north.
Streb Construction Co. Inc. of Iowa City is the prime contractor for this $4,957,000 pavement widening and asphalt resurfacing project.
Motorists are urged to drive with caution, follow instruction on construction signs, and obey the posted speed limits.
