Madison Street near Iowa Memorial Union reopens

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Most of Madison Street in front of the Iowa Memorial Union is now open to four lanes following the completion of a construction project.

According to Ed Scherrer of Design and Construction Services, the majority of the construction is complete, except for a small portion at the intersection of Madison and Market Streets. Full access to four lanes will return at the intersection in a few days, he said.

The construction project, which began in February, was instigated in order to connect steam lines east to west across campus.

All entrances to the Iowa Memorial Union now are open, but some limited construction will remain in the area this week.
