UPDATE (03/08/17): The temporary pedestrian path between Park Road and Church Street has reopened. 

ORIGINAL MESSAGE (03/06/17): Pedestrians need to again use a temporary detour that will re-route them off of Dubuque Street. 

Crews need to close the temporary pedestrian path that recently opened between Park Road and Church Street to install water main. It will likely be closed for the week, but will reopen as soon as possible. 

Pedestrians and cyclists will need to follow the marked detour and cross the Hancher Pedestrian Bridge. They must use the marked detour as there is no sidewalk on the east side of Dubuque Street. 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. 
Gateway Mayflower Detour
