Due to a large structure fire Downtown on Tuesday afternoon, streets have been closed, bus routes have been rerouted and a parking ramp has been closed.

A fire at a construction site near the intersection of East Burlington Street and South Clinton Street started Tuesday afternoon. 

East Burlington Street between South Clinton Street and South Dubuque Street will be closed overnight tonight. Due to the closure, bus routes will be detoured to East Prentiss Street and East Market Street. Several bus stops in Downtown will be missed. 

The Court Street Transportation Center is also currently closed, but cars already parked there can leave the ramp. 

The Dubuque Street parking ramp is open, but those exiting the ramp will be detoured east onto Burlington. 

The City still cautions drivers to avoid the area if possible during the street closure.
