Madison Street to be partially closed to traffic through the fall

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A portion of the eastern northbound lane of Madison Street, between Jefferson and Market Street, will be closed to traffic August 3 through November 18. The lane closure will not block access to the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) ramp.

The closure is due to construction work for a campus utilities project and an exterior repair project at the Iowa Memorial Union. This is the first phase of the project. The second phase is expected to begin in February and run through May and will also involve closing a portion of Madison Street.
