Section of Old Newton Road to close

A construction project on the University of Iowa campus will close a section of Old Newton Road north of the medical campus until late fall. Beginning Tuesday, June 11, Old Newton Road will close from the Cambus turn-around to the Medical Education Research Facility. Parking Lot 47 and the metered parking south of Hardin Library, both of which are serviced by this road, will also be permanently closed. The construction on Old Newton Road is part of a project involving the replacement of steam piping to the Health Sciences Campus and site improvements. The project should be completed by late November, University officials say.
