Flood mitigation efforts in Coralville will soon be completed.

Coralville has been awarded $9.7 million from the state of Iowa. The city will use the grant to construct permanent and removable floodwalls on the south side of Clear Creek from the Clear Creek Bridge on Highway 6 to First Avenue, as well as elevating Fifth Street at Biscuit Creek.

The project is the final component of the mitigation infrastructure for the city that was identified following historic flooding in 2008. The protection will be built to 1-foot about the 2008 flood level. The city has received $60 million from state and federal flood recovery, protection, and improvement funding.
