Us 63 (1st Street) Between Jefferson Street And Franklin Street

March 5, 2018, closure of 1st Street from Jefferson St. to Franklin Street will occur. Mullan Avenue, from Jefferson Street to Franklin Street, will be converted to a two-way street to accommodate the detour of NB traffic.”

Commercial Street between 1st Street and Mullan Avenue will be closed.

Jefferson Street and Franklin Street between 1st Street and Mullan Avenue will remain open.


A construction project on U.S. 63 between Franklin and Newell streets in Waterloo will require closing the roadway to traffic beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, March 5, until late November 2019,
weather permitting, according to the lowa Department of Transportation's New Hampton construction office.

One of the first phases of the project will require demolishing the existing pedestrian bridge so pedestrian access around the project will be reduced. Additional work includes replacement of utilities and pavement; building a bridge to carry U.S. 63 traffic over the current CN's railroad structure, removal of the railroad structure; and replacing the pedestrian bridge with an underpass.

During this project, U.S. 63 traffic will be detoured around the work zone using Airline Highway,
Airport Boulevard, and U.S. 218.
