"In the Works..."

Riverfront Levee Concrete Replacement Project (COMPLETED!):

- As you can tell, the City had work done along our Riverfront Levee over this past year - including a large number of  damaged concrete panels and curb line torn out and replaced,  the damaged permeable pavers replaced with stamped concrete, and dirt work done due to the train derailment damage that occurred along that area back in January, 2020.  Repairs began late last fall and have been completed!  Thanks for your patience through this project!

Valley Drive Repairs between "Upper" Woodland Drive "Lower" Woodland Drive:

- The City has contracted for work to be done to repair the 2 "sunken/dipped" areas on Valley Drive between "Upper" Woodland Drive and "Lower" Woodland Drive.  Work will include culvert replacement, drainage work, and complete road resurfacing. Valley Drive will be CLOSED between "Upper" Woodland Drive and "Lower" Woodland Drive beginning Monday, August 9  2021  for this culvert replacement and road work. Watch for road closure signage, road closed barricades, construction equipment and construction workers. Expect detouring around this area and allow for extra time in doing so.  Thanks for your patience through this project!

Ongoing Road Repairs throughout LeClaire:

The PWD continues to make road repairs as needed (i.e. patching, digging out sections of bad road surfaces, repairing and replacing sections of road surfaces, culvert replacement).  Please watch for dips in roadways, rough road surfaces, etc... around town.   Sometimes this occurs without warning or continues through a number of days.  This is an ongoing process throughout the year.  Thank you for your patience as we work to improve LeClaire's roadways.
