UI to reopen Hancher footbridge Tuesday morning

The University of Iowa will reopen the Hancher Auditorium footbridge at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12. The bridge has been inspected by Shive-Hattery and determined to be safe for use.

UI Facilities Management and Public Safety officials urge pedestrians to use caution on the Arts Campus walkways as much flood recovery work continues in that area. During the next couple of weeks, contractors will be removing flood-control levees. This work, in conjunction with building recovery work, will result in high vehicle and equipment traffic in that area.

The Iowa Memorial Union footbridge remains closed.
