North Cedar Heights Area Reconstruction
Thank you for your patience during this plan development process. Now that we are entering the winter season, there will be some City of Cedar Falls Public Works crews beginning the tree clearing work along the northern edge of West Ridgewood Drive. This work is anticipated to begin the week of December 19th. On the back of this sheet is an image depicting the approximate location for the tree removal area.
As discussed in the public information meeting that was held in September, this area of the slope has failed and will be corrected during the first phase of construction next year. By clearing the trees outside of migratory bird season, we can prevent any significant environmental disturbances. After the slope is corrected by construction, the slope will be seeded with a prairie seed mixture to provide the best slope stability moving forward.
As a general update on the planned reconstruction for next year, we are anticipating a bidding date in February, and will be holding one final Project Information Meeting for the residents that will be directly impacted by the construction on Timber Drive and West Ridgewood Drive in March. At this meeting, we will be able to share the most accurate preconstruction information possible.
