Weather permitting, on Monday, April 10, work will begin to widen Penn Street to five lanes between Cameron Way and Jones Boulevard. Two lanes of traffic will remain open through the work site, however the speed limit and lane width will be reduced to allow crews to begin utility work and install storm sewers.
Then, on Monday, April 17, the sidewalk on the south side of Penn Street will be closed as grading and utility work will begin on the south side of Penn Street. The sidewalk will be removed and then repaved once the south side of Penn Street is reconstructed. This sidewalk closure is expected to last through June.
Drivers are asked to use caution around the work site, allow extra travel time, and find alternative routes when possible. Details and updates on this and other North Liberty construction projects are available at northlibertyiowa.org/projects.
