The 100 block of East Burlington Street will be likely closed all day Wednesday, March 6, 2019 and will have an impact on morning commutes throughout Downtown.

After a structure fire heavily damaged a construction site Tuesday afternoon near the intersection of Burlington and South Clinton Street, Burlington will be closed between South Dubuque Street and Clinton. 

The damaged construction project will be taken down Wednesday morning.

Traffic will be detoured onto Dubuque, Court and Clinton while the block is closed. All other streets will remain open in the Downtown area. The Court Street Transportation Center will be open for parking as well. 

Traffic is expected to be impacted throughout the area due to Burlington's partial closure. Please use caution when commuting Wednesday.
