The City of Grinnell will be making improvements on 8th Avenue from West Street (Iowa Highway 146) west to Spencer Street. The improvements include handicapped ramps added to the intersections as well as street removal and replacement between existing curbs. All intersections in the project area except West Street will be closed and rebuilt. 8th Avenue will be closed for most of the duration of the project. Work is expected to start on May 26, 2015 and is scheduled for completion by July 4, 2015 pending favorable weather conditions.
