According to an article in the Valley News, "Riverside public hearing to consider eminent domain for bridge on Iowa Ave.," the Riverside City Council is contemplating using eminent domain to complete the Iowa Grade Separation Project.
In order to (1) build the 500-foot long bridge over railroad tracks on Iowa Avenue and (2) construct necessary northbound and southbound ramps, the Project requires the acquisition of portions of seven properties on Iowa Avenue between Palmyrita Avenue and Spring Street.
The City has already begun negotiations with the owners, including obtaining appraisals and making offers. The land acquisition is expected to cost about $2.8 million. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2011, and will take approximately 16 months.
