Dubuque Street will remain closed through June 3

IOWA CITY, Iowa —Dubuque Street between Jefferson Street and Iowa Avenue will remain closed until about 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 3 to allow for construction of the skywalk linking a new biological sciences building with the existing complex of buildings that make up the University of Iowa department of biological sciences.

UI officials initially hoped that the work could be completed so the street could be reopened Saturday, May 29. Current estimates indicate that workers will be pouring the concrete deck for the skywalk on Wednesday morning, June 3, and that the street will be reopened to traffic after 5 p.m.
