Iowa City city officials plan to move ahead with the approval of the U.S. Highway 6 and Sycamore Street improvement project.

The improvements to the intersection include adding an additional lane to Sycamore Street, a right-turn lane from Highway 6 to southbound Sycamore Street, and a new traffic-signal system, among other things.

Officials estimate the project will cost roughly $1.8 million. The project will be funded through a state grant, Iowa Department of Transportation funds, and city water revenue.

A public hearing will likely take place March 6. Iowa City city councilors will vote to approve the public hearing at their next meeting, Feb. 21.
