People can still access Lower City Park during construction of the Park Road Bridge. However, the entrance is limited to one lane of alternating traffic.
This traffic pattern is necessary, as the access point to the park is being elevated approximately 3.5 ft. as part of the larger project. A temporary pedestrian path is available outside of the construction zone. Use caution in the area. Consider parking in Upper City Park or at the Normandy Drive access to Lower City Park. A temporary pedestrian path is available outside of the construction zone. This area will be disrupted until July 24 when the work is anticipated to be complete.
The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation effort that is elevating Dubuque Street while raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge.
