Block of Market Street to be closed July 13

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Market Street will be closed between Clinton St. and Madison St. on Tuesday, July 13 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. to allow work on a renovation project in the Chemistry Building on the University of Iowa campus. Traffic will be redirected to Jefferson Street, which will carry two-way traffic during the period Market Street is closed.

The block will be closed to accommodate the removal of an air handling unit on the Chemistry Building and the installation of new structural steel supports. The total project, which will be completed by January 30, 2000, consists of renovation of the fifth floor into new laboratory space.

The same section of the street will be closed for a short time again in October to install a new air handling unit.
