Block of Mulberry Avenue to be closed to traffic starting June 27 – Voice Of Muscatine


Mulberry Avenue will be closed to traffic from East 4th Street to East 5th Street starting Thursday for the demolition of the building at 417 Mulberry Avenue.

Northbound traffic will be detoured west at East 3rd Street to Cedar Street, then turn right on Cedar Street to East 5th Street and then back to Mulberry on East 5th Street.

Southbound traffic will be detoured west on East 5th Street to Cedar Street, then turn left on Cedar Street to East 3rd Street and back to Mulberry on East 3rd Street.

The street closure and detour will continue until the structure has been safely demolished and removed.

Drivers are urged to pay attention to traffic control signage and find alternate routes if possible.

Valley Construction was awarded the $65,500 contract to demolish and remove the structure during the June 6 Muscatine City Council meeting. The structure has been vacant for more than two decades, and a 2023 inspection found the building to be dangerous and unsafe.
