COVID 19 Updates

Greetings members of the La Center Community. The City of La Center is taking steps to contain the spread of coronavirus as well as preparing for further actions as they are needed. We understand and empathize with the growing anxiety and uncertainty of how, or when, the disease will evolve in our region and what the response will be if an outbreak does occur here in our City.

The situation continues to change rapidly and our response will adjust accordingly. We will share additional information and updates as they are available. In the meantime, information on the state and regional response can be found on the following websites:

The Brezee Creek Culvert Replacement & East 4th Street Widening Project Is Underway

The City of La Center has retained PBS Engineering & Environmental and its consultant team to design the Brezee Creek Culvert Replacement and East 4th Street Widening project, located between East Cedar Street and Northeast Highland Avenue. The project aims to 1) to improve fish passage within Brezee Creek by removing the existing undersized culvert and 2) to enhance traffic flow and safety on East 4th Street for vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. The project is currently in the design and planning phase funded by a grant administered by the Department of Commerce. Additional funding is being sought at this time for construction. With secured funding, construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2021 and last for approximately 18 months.
