One lane of Dubuque Street to be closed Monday morning

IOWA CITY, Iowa —One northbound lane of Dubuque Street in front of Mayflower Residence Hall will be closed from 8:30-11:30 a.m., Monday, Sept. 27 to accommodate the testing of the pump for a new sprinkler system. Traffic along that portion of Dubuque Street will be reduced to one-lane for that period.

The sprinkler system being tested was installed over the summer as part of a project to upgrade fire protection in Mayflower residence hall. It includes a new computerized fire alarm system, among other features.
