Heavy rainfall and flooding has closed the Iowa River Trail at the Highway 6 underpass, located just south of Riverfront Crossings Park, 1101 S. Clinton St.
Pedestrians and bicyclists should use an alternate route. Staff continue to monitor the situation, and may close additional trails and park areas as needed.
Weather pending, the east entrance and section of Hickory Hill Park along 1st Avenue will be closed beginning today, Wednesday, March 13, 2019. Crews will be doing preliminary work to improve trail sections and pedestrian bridges. The work is expected to last approximately one week. Additional closures will take place throughout the spring and summer.
Park users should access Hickory Hill Park via the south entrance off East Bloomington Street and the north entrance off Conklin Lane.
Benton Street will be closed to traffic from Greenwood Drive to Hudson Avenue to accommodate water main repair work through Sunday, March 24th.
Update: 1/28/19 - Government shutdown to end. Details: https://nahroblog.org/2019/01/26/government-shutdown-ends/
The ICHA has funds to make the February 2019 Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) to landlords. However, the ICHA does not have funds to make the March 2019 HAP payment. Therefore, if the federal shutdown is not resolved by February 28, 2019, the ICHA will not be making any HAP payments to landlords beginning March 1, 2019. The ICHA will continue to operate with normal business hours. View the letters send to landlords and tenants: http://bit.ly/2FNGUKG
