STREETS

STREETS. The congressional act of July 2, 1836 provided for surveying the lots and streets of several area cities including Dubuque. A total of $3,000 was appropriated to cover the expense. On March 3, 1837, an amendatory act was passed by which three commissioners were appointed to hear all evidence under the claims. These commissioners were to be paid six dollars per day.

Surveying streets did not suggest the early settlers wanted to quickly improve this means of transportation.

         Indian trails and miners' paths there were through 
         Dirty Hollow,over Whisky and Hamilton hills, through 
         the tortuous windings of Madden hollow, over the 
         rugged ascent of Lorimier Hollow, now Julien Avenue, 
         and through several other wild ravines and over the
         craggy steeps of the bluffs around the city. The only
         unobstructed approach to the city was by way of what 
         is called the Couler at the upper end of town. Farmers, 
         of course, complained, but their complaints were for 
         some time unheeded. They had to watch the opportunity 
         of fair weather to come to town and wait for each other 
         at the foot of the hills to double and sometimes treble 
         teams to help each other through. This process went on 
         for years until other markets superseded this largely. 
         Galena enterprise put a ferry across the river at Tete 
         des Mortes and secured much of the trade of Jackson and
         southern Dubuque counties. Other points — Bellevue,
         Muscatine and Davenport — drew from the county west. 
         It was then realized that Dubuque would have to improve its  
         Indian trails and miners' paths." 
                (Express and Herald, October 24, 1855.)

In 1865 John D. Bush proposed the laying out of Grand Avenue, commencing at Quigley lane opposite the brewery on Julien Avenue and extending along the ridge road until its intersection with the MILITARY ROAD on the top of Whiskey hill. In November, 1865, so unclean had the streets become, the citizens turned out en masse, formed a brigade, and cleaned them.

Over time, Dubuque, like other cities, changed street names. Many changes were made in 1921 at the suggestion of Ossian E. CARR, Dubuque's first City Manager. Among those that have been changed are the following:

The name Whiskey Hill was used colloquially to refer to Southern Avenue through the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but never appeared on any printed map or street sign. (1)

In 2014 Dubuque motorists noticed a new type of signal added to two traffic lights on Ninth Street as part of recent construction projects. The flashing yellow left-turn arrow signal was a new traffic management tool aimed at keeping traffic moving, increasing safety, and reducing fuel consumption. (2)

The new signals were installed at the intersections of Ninth and Locust and Ninth and White streets in Dubuque and were being added to intersections across Iowa. The new signal featured a flashing yellow left-turn arrow, in addition to a red, green and steady yellow arrow. The flashing yellow arrow replaced the circular green signal used in the traditional left-turn signal configuration to indicate the need for left-turning vehicles to yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. A flashing yellow arrow meant left turns were permitted, but motorists first had to yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, and then proceed with caution. The flashing yellow arrow did not replace the solid yellow arrow and its meaning; it did replace the green “ball” indication as a signal for a yielding left turn. (3)

In November 2014 a new traffic control pavement marking was announced in the redesign of two downtown Dubuque streets. Dubuque motorists were reminded to note the change and stop where directed by the signage at the four intersections featuring diagonal crosshatch markings. The purpose of the markings was to force traffic to stop at a red traffic signal at a distance before the intersection, which allows truck traffic adequate space to safely make turns on to that street from the right of the intersection. (4)

White “Do Not Block” diagonal crosshatch markings were added to two intersections on Ninth Street and two intersections on Eleventh Street as part of the conversion from one-way to two-way streets. The intersections were for westbound traffic at the intersections of Ninth Street and White Street, Ninth Street and Central Avenue, Eleventh Street and White Street, and Eleventh Street and Central Avenue. Each intersection featured signage stating “Stop Here on Red. (5)
