Work will begin to resurface several streets in Iowa City  on Monday (June 13, 2016), weather permitting. 

The Asphalt Resurfacing Project will begin with work on Wade Street between Wayne Avenue and Muscatine Avenue, Whiting Avenue between Forest Glen and Whiting Avenue Court, Brookside Drive from Meadow Street to Eastwood Drive, and Oakcrest Street from Sunset Street to Woodside Drive.

Lane reductions will be used to allow for pavement work on the streets. Neighborhood residents, emergency and service vehicles will be allowed access during the work. Normal traffic should resume by August 1, 2016. 

Periodic updates will be posted as the resurfacing project progresses into other areas of the City.

Drivers are encouraged to allow for extra time of take a different route during the project. As always, use caution when traveling through construction areas.
