Abstract

The proposed project consists of upgrading West 1 '' Street (Iowa 57), located in Cedar Falls, Iowa, from the current two-lane roadway to a three- to five-lane facility. The project corridor passes through a mix of residential, commercial and agricultural land uses at the western edge of Cedar Falls. The project would begin just west of North Union Road and extend east to Hudson Road for a total length of approximately 1.6 miles (Figure 1 ). The new roadway would consist of a three-lane cross section from just west of Union Road to just west of Lake Ridge Drive. It would then widen to a five-lane cross section, including a center left-turn lane. From this point east to Hudson Road, the new roadway would consist of a five-lane urban cross-section. The roadway would include curb and gutter along its length. A 1O-ft wide recreational trail would be constructed on the north side of the new roadway. A 5-ft sidewalk on the south side would be accommodated for, but not constructed at this time.
