Reconstruction of Dubuque's 14th Street railroad crossing starts Mon.

Posted: Updated:

Reconstruction of Dubuque's 14th Street railroad crossing, between Elm and Maple streets, will begin at 7 a.m. Monday.

The work will close the crossing and a part of 14th Street for about two weeks. City engineer Gus Psihoyos said the project will take approximately 14 working days to complete, weather permitting.

The 14th Street Railroad Grade Crossing Reconstruction Project is a partnership between between the city of Dubuque, Canadian Pacific Railway and the Iowa Department of Transportation. It will involve the complete reconstruction of the railroad grade plus the approach roadway pavement on both sides of the rail line.

Drivers will see detour route signs to help them navigate the work and access impacted businesses, which will remain open.
