Preparation work for Iowa City's First Avenue Grade Separation Project is already underway and city leaders will be holding a public meeting.

The public informational meeting will give more details about the First Avenue Grade Separation Project, where city staff and consultants will let residence know hat to expect during the construction.

So far, city crews removed trees from the area to prepare for upcoming construction work

Construction is scheduled to begin during the month of April.

The project plan involves lowering First Avenue while raising the railroad at the current at-grade crossing of the Iowa Interstate Railroad.

Iowa City has designated funds, along with support from federal funding, to design and construct the separation between the railroad and vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Included in this project will be a new railroad bridge, street paving, water main improvements and other related work.

The meeting will held Monday, April 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. at South East Junior High library, 2501 Bradford Drive.
