University of Iowa News Release


August 6, 2009

At A Glance

Portion of Newton Road closed for work in August

Newton Road will be closed from its intersection with Highway 6/2nd Avenue to the north entrance of Carver Hawkeye Arena beginning 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 9, and reopening Thursday, Aug. 20.

The closure will affect only traffic entering from Highway 6, not traffic entering from South Riverside Drive. The closure is necessitated by storm sewer work as part of the University of Iowa's Carver Hawkeye Arena Addition and Renovation project. Traffic should use Hawkins Drive as the alternate route.
