The Iowa City City Council will vote on a resolution May 17 that will authorize the acquisition of property necessary for the construction of the First Avenue Grade Separation and Drainage Project, according to a letter from Ron Knoche, city engineer, to City Manager Tom Markus.

The project involves lowering First Avenue, raising the Iowa Interstate Railroad tracks, and constructing a railroad bridge over First Avenue, the letter states.

Drainage improvements both at the bridge site and across First Avenue are also included.
