Traffic and parking around Iowa City will be impacted as students move in to University of Iowa Residence Halls beginning Tuesday, Aug. 15 through Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017. 

  • West Campus move-in is directed to use the Highway 1 exit from Highway 218 toward Riverside Dr. and on to Grand Ave.
  • East Campus move-in is directed to use the Dodge St. exit from Interstate 80 toward Market St. and on to Clinton St. or Madison St.
  • Lanes remain reduced on Dubuque St. due to construction of the Iowa City Gateway Project. Drivers should continue to anticipate delays as work will continue throughout 2018. 

During move-in, drivers should expect traffic delays, be mindful of reduced parking availability, and allow extra travel time. As always, be cautious and alert for pedestrians.
