West 12th Street Construction Project Begins April 6

12th Street - Stage 1 Closure

Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, reconstruction of West 12th Street will begin by closing West 12th Street from College Street to Tremont Street. A full road closure will be required and the closure will be in effect for 12 to 14 weeks, depending on the weather. During this time, Walnut Street will remain open minus intermittent closures for utility installation. 

The City of Cedar Falls has been in contact with residents regarding garbage pick-up and mailbox relocation during the road closure:

During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area of West 12th Street. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portion of Walnut Street, Olive Street, Iowa Street, Tremont Street or either end of West 12th Street, outside the construction area, during the street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.

Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the Transfer Station (view information on the Cedar Falls Transfer Station by visiting https://www.cedarfalls.com/107/Transfer-Station or call (319) 273-8629).

Additionally, during the road closure, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated at one end of the road closure. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way.

Residents are advised to not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location.
