Madison Street to be partially closed to traffic Feb. 14 to June 2

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The western southbound lane of Madison Street, between Jefferson and Market Streets, will be closed for nearly three months beginning Monday, Feb. 14, so the second phase of construction can begin on a campus utilities project and exterior repair project at the Iowa Memorial Union.

Work on the project, which is expected to continue until June 2, will also result in the removal of five off-street parking stalls in front of the IMU for the project's duration.

A portion of the eastern northbound lane of Madison Street that was closed during the first phase of the project will be reopened Monday, allowing for the creation of two temporary southbound lanes and one northbound lane.
