A buffered bike lane is shown on an Iowa City street.

The City of Iowa City is considering the addition of a buffered bike lane to both Dodge Street and Governor Street as part of the Asphalt Resurfacing 2019 Project.

These bicycle lanes have been identified as a recommended improvement by the Iowa City Bicycle Master Plan. However, on-street parking will have to be removed to accommodate the new bike lanes. The bike lanes would be added between Burlington Street and Bowery Street.

A public open house will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019 to discuss the Asphalt Resurfacing 2019 Project, and the proposed bicycle facilities. The meeting will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Emma J. Harvat Hall in City Hall, 410 East Washington St.

Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs.
