Iowa City project will affect traffic on Park Road, Dubuque Street
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An Iowa City water main construction project will
affect both vehicular and pedestrian traffic on the Park Road bridge and
on Dubuque Street between Park Road and the University of Iowa's Mayflower
Residence Hall beginning Thursday, Oct. 2 and continuing through most of
The construction project will reduce traffic on Park Road bridge to
two lanes beginning Thursday morning, Oct. 2, until Oct. 11, weather permitting.
The next phase of the project, beginning about Oct. 13, will reduce
Dubuque Street from the usual four lanes to two lanes from the Park Road
bridge to the Mayflower.
In addition, the pedestrian sidewalk and bike path on the west side
of Dubuque Street will be closed during the project. A pedestrian walkway
and bike path will be created between the Mayflower and the main campus
by using the eastern most lane of Dubuque Street. Concrete barriers will
be set up to separate pedestrians and bikers from car and truck traffic.
