Dubuque gets $500,000 grant for improvements

Posted:

DUBUQUE (AP) -- The Iowa Office of Energy Independence has awarded the city of Dubuque a competitive grant of $500,000 that will be used for improvements along a corridor formed by Central Avenue and U.S. Route 52.

The plan is to replace traffic signals, improve traffic flow, increase safety and reduce air pollution and gas consumption along the corridor.

The funds will allow the replacement of traffic lights and a three decade-old traffic interconnect system as well as the installation of fiber optic cable and conduit along the corridor.
