Weather permitting, on Monday, April 4, 2016 work will commence on a City maintenance project that involves replacement of sidewalk curb ramps at the following intersections in Iowa City:
Rochester Avenue and Ashwood Drive
Court Street and Linden Court
Linden Court and Linden Drive
Washington Street and Green Mountain Drive
Vehicle traffic will be maintained; however, the work will require sidewalk closure and rerouting of pedestrian routes during the project.
Two bus stops on the Rochester bus route will be closed due to the curb ramp project. The outbound stop located at Rochester Avenue and Ashwood Drive (stop #7414) and the inbound bus stop located at Washington Street and Green Mountain Drive (stop #7436) will be closed during the project.
Outbound customers who normally use stop #7414 should use stop #7412, located at Rochester Avenue and 7th Avenue as an alternate. Inbound customers who normally use stop #7436, should use stop #7437 located at Washington Street and Mt. Vernon Drive as an alternate.
It is anticipated that all work will be completed and the bus stops will be reopened by Monday, April 25, 2016.
Motorists are encouraged to take note of this construction work and to allow extra time as delays may be possible. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
