Section of East Main Street Reopens


While the Streetscape project on the 200 and 300 blocks of East Main Street continues, another piece of the thoroughfare is now open to traffic.

The city of Ottumwa announced Wednesday morning that all traffic is welcome to go down the East Main Street section from Vine to Jefferson Streets. According to the press release, the contractor still has some punch list items to accomplish so motorists should exercise caution when traveling on this road.

The East Main Reconstruction Project started March 2018 which included full-width, full-depth street reconstruction, new water main, new sanitary sewers, new storm sewers, and new sidewalks.

The city of Ottumwa concluded its release by saying:

“The City appreciates the public’s cooperation and patience with this project and regrets any inconvenience caused by the process.”
