Weather permitting, beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 27, Burlington Street, between Summit Street and Muscatine Avenue, will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic with flaggers on site to direct traffic. This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate the relocation of fire hydrant in the area. It is anticipated that that normal traffic will resume by Wednesday, Oct. 28. 

Motorists are encouraged to allow extra travel time or to seek an alternate route during this time period as delays may occur.  As always, caution should be exercised when driving through all construction areas.
