CRANDIC Repairs Close Railroad Crossing

The road south of the Main Library on the University of Iowa campus will be blocked at its west end Tuesday, July 31 and Wednesday, August 1 for repairs on the railroad crossing, which will be closed. Auto access to UI parking lot #3 and the library loading dock will be available only by way of the Burlington Street entrance across from the UI power plant. Exiting from that roadway onto Burlington Street is limited to a right turn only because of other repairs near the power plant. Motorists are urged to use caution. The Crandic Railroad requires this closure to repair their tracks in this area.
