Burlington Street is limited to one lane eastbound by power plant

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Burlington Street east of Riverside Drive will reopen for traffic as soon as Wednesday, May 23, but eastbound travel will be limited to a single lane from Riverside to the power plant entrance.

Burlington Street has been closed in both directions to accommodate work on the Crandic railroad tracks. Two eastbound lanes of Burlington now will be closed to accommodate work on the steam tunnels connecting the campus to the UI power plant.

The steam tunnel work should be completed by the end of July, UI officials say, and then all three eastbound lanes of Burlington will be open for traffic.
