Washington Street will be closed between Capitol and Madison streets from Friday, June 20, until Sunday, June 29, to accommodate construction to upgrade the water main serving the University of Iowa's Pentacrest. In addition, Madison Street will be reduced to single lane two-way traffic at the intersection with Washington.

Cambuses on the Red, Mayflower, and Hawkeye-Interdorm routes will continue south on Clinton and turn west onto Burlington Street. A stop to serve library patrons will be added at the Lindquist Center at Burlington and Madison. The Pentacrest bus, which normally circles the Pentacrest, will instead turn north from Jefferson onto Clinton, west down Market, then south on Madison.
