UI construction project will reduce traffic lanes on Burlington Street
IOWA CITY, Iowa Traffic will be reduced to two lanes both eastbound
and westbound on the Burlington Street bridge in Iowa City beginning Monday,
March 6. The traffic control will allow the University of Iowa to begin work
on steam vault repairs that will continue through May 12.
The work on the Burlington Street North Steam Vault is part of a larger
project that will consist of repairs to four steam vaults on the UI campus.
The Burlington Street North Steam Vault is located between the UI Power Plant
on the south side of Burlington Street and the UI Water Plant, which is north
of Burlington Street.
