Update on East State Street Utility and Street Improvements

East State Street in Mason City

MASON CITY – The East State Street rehabilitation project continues as sanitary manholes are being replaced. Curb sawing and removal will also begin between Carolina and Kentucky Avenues.

Beginning Monday, September 17th traffic will be rerouted onto a short detour due to work being performed near the existing railroad viaduct and at the intersection of Virginia Avenue. The vertical clearance between the outside travel lanes and the viaduct create a safety concern for high profile vehicles that use this route. The detour is expected to remain in place for a period of approximately one week.

The detour will affect State Street traffic between Carolina and York Avenues. Traffic will be rerouted and clearly signed south to 1st and 2nd Streets. Local traffic within the area will have access to their properties.

Please exercise caution and allow additional time when traveling the project route.

Direct any question to the Engineering Department at 421-3605.
