Weather permitting on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, as work continues on the Sycamore Street – City Limits to S. Gilbert Street Project, the next phase will require the closure of the Sycamore Street at Lehman Avenue to allow for reconstruction of the intersection. 

During the closure, access for Lehman Avenue and Kountry Lane traffic will be routed along the north–south segment of Sycamore Street.   

In addition, this closure will prohibit access to the Iowa City Kicker’s Soccer Park via the north entrance from Sycamore Street. Access to the Park will be maintained utilizing the south entrance from Napoleon Street.  

Access to the new Archibald Alexander Elementary School will be from the north-south segment of Sycamore Street. 

It is anticipated that normal access along Sycamore Street and Lehman Avenue will resume by the first of November.                                                                                                                                      

Motorists are encouraged to take note of this construction work and to seek alternate routes during this time period. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
