The scope of work on this project includes the conversion from the existing 2 or 4-lane roads to 3-lane roads on Highway 92/A Avenue and Highway 63/Market Street. The majority of work on this project involves pavement markings along with adjustments to signal heads. This project also includes a new traffic signal at Highway 63/Market Street and C Avenue. This project is divided into 3 divisions: Division 1 includes all work associated with pavement reconstruction and includes $500,000 in funding from the IDOT TSIP (Traffic Safety Improvement Program), Division 2 includes C Avenue traffic signalization and includes $139,000 in funding from the IDOT TSIP, and Division 3 includes traffic signal installation with the city solely responsible for these costs.
These improvements are a part of improvements based on a study thru the Iowa Department of Transportation with the Traffic Safety Improvement Program. The 3-lane conversion will improve safety and efficiency on these corridors, minimize traffic delays and congestion, and allow for future planning.
This project was awarded at the Oskaloosa City Council meeting December 6, 2021, to Minturn, Inc. Due to material shortages/delays this project is anticipated to start August 8th. This project has a total of 60 working days.
