IOWA CITY, IA. -- People are invited to attend a public information meeting about a proposed safety improvement to First Avenue from Highway 6 to Mall Drive.
The City is looking to reconfigure traffic lanes from four lanes (two lanes in each direction) to three lanes (one lane in each direction and a center two-way, left turn lane). The lane changes will also allow for new traffic signals and additional paving for bike lanes.
The meeting will happen Thursday, June 30 at the Mercer Park Aquatic Center and Scanlon Gym, located at 2701 Bradford Drive. The meeting will go from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. inside the Proctor & Gamble Room and will be open house style. A brief presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m.
The Iowa Department of Transportation will help with the development of this project through Traffic Safety Improvement Project Funding.
A similar proposal is being considered for Mormon Trek Boulevard as well. To learn more about the project and the safety of three-way roads visit icgov.org/laneconversions.
Questions and feedback can be directed to Project Engineer Brenna Fall of Snyder & Associates, Inc., at 319-362-9394 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The City of Iowa City contact for this project is Senior Civil Engineer Scott Sovers, 319-356-5142 or email email@example.com.
