Construction Update for 3/26

Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Starting out on your Monday morning commute, you may notice a number of construction projects in Eastern Iowa, especially as the weather becomes warmer.

In Cedar Rapids, work will be taking place on a water main project on Otis Road Southeast.

Crews will be replacing the underground water main with a new one.

Otis Road will be closed to traffic between Otis Avenue and Stewart Road Southeast.

Some of the alternative routes to take will include Otis Avenue, Stewart Road, and Blakely Boulevard and crews say these traffic impacts should last for about one month.

In Johnson County, Work is underway on the Mehaffey Bridge Road Trail Extension.

Crews are putting in a concrete trail along Mehaffey Bridge Road from Cedar Springs Drive to the Mehaffey Boat Ramp.

They'll be installing storm sewers, retaining walls, and a culvert. Traffic will be allowed through during the construction process, however, lanes will be reduced to alternating one-way traffic when they begin work on the underpass.

Also in Johnson County, Oak Crest Hill Road will be closed to thru-traffic from Observatory Avenue to 565th Street.

The project involves replacing a culvert under Oak Crest Road at Liberty Creek.

The best route to get around this is to take Observatory Avenue to Highway 218 to Highway 22

Crews say the Oak Crest Hill Road project should be completed by June 2018.

In Linn County, starting in a few months crews tell us they will start concrete paving on Edgewood Road.

The project will take place a half mile north of Tower Terrace Road to County Home Road.

During this time the road will be closed to thru traffic during the paving and access will be limited certain times for local traffic.

There will also be asphalt paving on Milburn Road from Blairs Ferry Road to Tower Terrace Road.

Milburn Road will be open to traffic, but drivers should be cautious of crews in the area.

And if we head over to the Lewis Access Road, there will be concrete paving from the Cedar River Bridge to Interstate 380.

The road will be closed to thru traffic during the paving and access will be limited to local traffic.
