1st Street NE Storm Sewer Flood Improvements Begin

April 1, 2021

Starting Monday, April 5, 2021, storm sewer improvements will be underway on 1st Street NE, between A Avenue NE and 1st Avenue East, as part of the City’s permanent flood control system. Lane reductions will be in effect during the course of construction, which is anticipated to be completed by June 2021.

The project includes removing and reconstructing underground storm sewer pipe to consolidate drainage outfalls to the Cedar River, and redirect storm water to a future pump station.

Later this summer, work in this area will include the installation of a floodgate on 1st Avenue East at 1st Street; as well as trail, curb, and ADA improvements on 1st Street SE near City Hall in advance of permanent flood control. Temporary traffic signals will be in place at 1st Avenue and 1st Street East during construction in this area.
