Linn Street will reduce to one lane of northbound traffic only between Iowa Avenue and College Street beginning Monday, Oct. 24, weather permitting.

The lane reduction is needed as reconstruction work continues on the Washington Streetscape Project, an ongoing effort to replace underground infrastructure and update amenities like lighting, seating and parking on Washington Street.

Linn Street is expected to reopen to full traffic on November 30.  Drivers should take note of this work and take an alternative route.

The upgrades and updates on Washington Street are part of the City’s larger Downtown and Pedestrian Mall Streetscape plan. All businesses on Washington Street are open during construction.

To receive project updates, sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions and follow the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter. To learn more, visit
