The City of Maquoketa’s downtown was in need of definition.

The project features easy-to-construct planter/bench structures which feature smooth and rough limestone bases, including Mo-Keta limestone quarried from Jackson County.

Sidewalk bump-out nodes that enhance pedestrian safety, create shorter crosswalks and street access that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Traffic signals are set back to align with building faces so that motorists see pedestrians more easily and turn lanes for Main Street and its cross-streets enhance safety.
