 Public Works

Public Works completed 20 miles of street sweeping this week and removed 5 large dump truck loads of leaves and other organic waste from the streets that would have otherwise eventually ended up in the storm drainage system

Repair was made to signal pole at 55th  and Blue Ridge Cutoff after it was knocked down by a vehicle. The signal pole has been hit many times due to the pole’s close proximity to the intersection; a long-term solution for relocation is in the planning process.

Public Works will be replacing all of the walkway boards on the wooden bridge in the near future. The replacement is necessary due to extreme warping and cupping of the existing boards that are on the verge of being a walking hazard. The new boards will be installed with screws instead of nails to help mitigate lifting and warping.

 The public improvements at the intersection of 350 Highway and Maple Avenue that were necessitated by the construction of the Hy-Vee Convenience Store are complete. The timing of the traffic signal was recently changed to provide “split phase timing”. The change to the timing provides a separate time for southbound Maple Avenue traffic to negotiate the intersection and a separate time for northbound Maple Avenue traffic to negotiate the intersection. The change will prevent two left turning vehicles from blocking the intersection and provide a more efficient intersection.

 Public Works will assist the Police Department with traffic control next Friday in conjunction with the Holiday Lighting ceremony.
