Temporary Lane Reduction In Place For Melrose Avenue

Beginning immediately, a construction project on the University of Iowa campus will reduce traffic to one lane in each direction on Melrose Avenue, between Hawkins Drive and South Grand Avenue. Each direction will maintain one lane of traffic without a shared center turning lane. Completion of the project and resumption of normal traffic lanes are anticipated in August.

The lane reduction is necessary to install a pair of chilled water pipes and allow the installation of additional traffic control. Caution is advised throughout the construction area.
