Construction project reduces lanes on Burlington Street
IOWA CITY, Iowa Traffic has been reduced
to two lanes eastbound and one lane westbound on the Burlington Street bridge
in Iowa City and will remain that way for three and one-half weeks. 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.
