Madison Street near Iowa Memorial Union reopens
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Most of Madison Street in front of the Iowa Memorial
Union is now open to four lanes following the completion of a construction
According to Ed Scherrer of Design and Construction Services, the majority
of the construction is complete, except for a small portion at the intersection
of Madison and Market Streets. Full access to four lanes will return at the
intersection in a few days, he said.
The construction project, which began in February, was instigated in order
to connect steam lines east to west across campus.
All entrances to the Iowa Memorial Union now are open, but some limited
construction will remain in the area this week.
