A temporary pedestrian path has been provided between Park Road and Church Street. Walkers, joggers and bicyclists are no longer being re-routed off of Dubuque Street and over the Park Road Bridge to connect with the Hancher Pedestrian Bridge. 

However, pedestrians and cyclists are still reminded to use other posted detours on Dubuque Street as the weather warms and work continues on the Iowa City Gateway Project.

Those looking to access Terrell Mill Park, the skate park and the University of Iowa Boat House can no longer use the crosswalk located across from Mayflower Residence Hall. People will need to follow the pedestrian detour to the north and instead use the access drive at Terrell Mill Park.

Entering the construction zone is dangerous and the detour is in place for safety. Community police officers are patrolling the area and will issue tickets to anyone found inside of the construction area.

The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation project that will elevate Dubuque Street while also raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge. To receive project updates sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions and following the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter using #ICgateway. To learn more visit icgov.org/gatewayproject
