 US 63 (MULLAN AVENUE) BETWEEN JEFFERSON STREET AND FRANKLIN STREET
 The second stage of a two-year reconstruction project on U.S. 63 in Waterloo, which affects traffic patterns, pedestrian usage, and business and residential access has begun.

Traffic impact
  • Through traffic on U.S. 63 between Jefferson Street and Franklin Street will continue to be
    detoured around the Work Zone.
  • Local traffic on north- and southbound U.S. 63 between Jefferson Street and Franklin Street will be shifted to one lane in each direction utilizing the northbound lanes to allow for the reconstruction of the southbound lanes. A middle lane will allow left turns at intersections. Traffic is expected to be in this pattern until late July.
Pedestrian impact
  • Pedestrians can use the existing river crossing at First Street (northbound U.S. 63) but
    pedestrians must utilize a flight of steps to access.
  • The city of Waterloo currently has the Fourth Street bridge pedestrian crossing under repair.
The closest Americans with Disability Act compliant pedestrian Crossing is on Park Avenue, which is three blocks east of the project site, will remain open and will be the only ADA-accessible pedestrian river crossing open within a five-block area.

The lowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted Speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in Work Zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample Space between vehicles, and Wear seat belts.
