What is going on under that blanket covering the Norbert F. Beckey Bridge? No, it a secret government experiment. It just happens that the bridge is getting a facelift courtesy of Spartan Contracting and the Iowa DOT. It will be revealed in about two months. #muscatine #bridgepainting #mysterious

Every hectic day needs 30 seconds of serenity to bring the day back into focus. Enjoy! #muscatineiowa #mist #meditation

The City of Muscatine will permit the use of fireworks during a one week period in July and a one week period at the end of the year following approval by the City Council of an amendment to the City Code. Recently passed State legislation allowed the sale and use of consumer fireworks and allowed local municipalities the option to limit the time period to legally use or explode the fireworks.

Perfect weather for an ice cream social on Sunday as the Friends of the Muscatine Art Center hosted their annual event June 25. There was plenty of pie, cake, cookies, and, of course, ice cream to go along with fun family games and music. #muscatineiowa #artcenter #icecream #family

Just a week ago Muscatine was recovering from a thunderstorm that brought torrential rain and golf ball size hail. Tonight the suns rays poured through broken clouds for this Kodak moment photograph taken from the Mark Twain Overlook. #muscatine #summernight #sunsets

After the crazy weather of last Saturday and the interment showers of Wednesday, an amazing sunset gives hope for the days ahead. #muscatine #sunset #iowa #firstdayofsummer

Counting down to Derby a Day. Before the storm hit, cars for the soap box Derby went through an inspection Saturday. #muscatine #soapboxderby #downhillracing

Just a little bit of rain ... and hail ... for a Saturday afternoon. #cityofmuscatine #muscatine #summerstorm #rainingbuckets #hail


It has been just over a month since the Mississippi Drive Corridor project officially began with jackhammers and excavators tearing up the pavement between Sycamore and Pine streets. The concrete and other material was hauled to the former Beach Lumber site to await a new life. That came with the arrival last week of a concrete crusher that turned the old concrete into sub-base material that meets DOT specifications. That recycled sub-base was then used to begin the reconstruction of Mississippi Drive starting at the Sycamore intersection. Another pile of crushed recycled material that includes concrete, asphalt, and other material, was milled to DOT specifications for back-fill and will be used later in the project. Project manager Bill Haag said that the ability to use recycled material is good for the environment, reduces costs, and is great sub-base material that is readily available. #cityofmuscatine #muscatineiowa #recycling #stonecrushing #mississippidrive #riverfront
