Crews will be closing the left turn lane on Dubuque Street at Foster Road beginning Monday, Aug. 28, 2017.

Traffic signals will be adjusted to allow vehicles to make a left turn from the through lane during this time.  

This switch is being made to remove the existing concrete median and complete paving in the southbound lanes in preparation for a traffic switch shortly after Labor Day.

Pedestrian routes will be redirected as needed during the work. As always, use caution when traveling through a work area.

The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation effort that is elevating Dubuque Street while raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge. To receive project updates, be sure to sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions,  and follow the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter using #ICgateway. To learn more visit
