Football fans urged to avoid using Dubuque Street exit for Indiana game

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Football fans attending the University of Iowa football team's Homecoming game with Indiana are urged to avoid using the Dubuque Street exit from Interstate 80 into Iowa City. An Iowa City water main construction project is causing congestion on Dubuque Street between Park Road and the UI's Mayflower Residence Hall.

Construction will be halted this Saturday for the football game, but the number of lanes will still be reduced in the construction zone because one lane of traffic has been converted to use for pedestrians and bicycle riders.

Fans traveling westbound on I-80 can use Exit 246 (Dodge Street) and follow DOT "Football Stadium Exit" signs along that route. Exit 249 (Hoover Highway) can also be used to get into Iowa City.
