Road construction continues in downtown Cedar Falls


Warming weather is a boost for a lot of downtown businesses, but it's also the time of the year for many road construction projects to get underway.

In Cedar Falls, 2nd Street between Main and State Streets is undergoing a full renovation.

Main Street has been closed for the past couple of days, so crews could hook up a water main.

It may be an inconvenience now, but store owners say it will be worth it in the long run.

"Like any busy corridor there's always renovations is going on and this is part of a being here and I'm sure all the merchants downtown will like the finished product here in a couple weeks," said Brent Johnson, the owner of Bike Tech.

While Main Street will reopen this weekend, 2nd Street will remain closed. City engineers say that section of road should be open by the end of the month.
