First Street East Construction Project

   

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The First Street Reconstruction Project (from Fareway entrance to Old Lakeport Road) transforms the existing 4,000 feet long, two-lane rural road section into a three-lane concrete street with curb and gutters. The existing roadway elevation will be lowered as needed to accommodate drainage toward the street. Additionally, the City’s existing concrete trail will be extended east along the south side of First Street to Old Lakeport Road where it will connect to the Loess Hills Scenic Trail north to Sioux City. The pavement portion of project will be constructed in three stages, or phases. The first phase of construction is between Pub 52 and Midstates Bank. Access drives and other detour measures will be provided to ensure businesses are open to the public. The second phase, which is the longest, is between Prairie Bluff Drive and Kiwanis Park. The third phase is from Kiwanis Park to Old Lakeport Road. Once construction starts there will not be through traffic access from east to west on First between Old Lakeport and South Lewis Boulevard. Local traffic will have access to homes and businesses. The through traffic detour route will be posted as Old Lakeport/220th Street/South Lewis Blvd.
