Northbound S. Grand Near Field House Closed To Traffic Through Mid-August
A construction project on the University of Iowa campus will close the northbound lane of a portion of S. Grand Avenue between the Field House and Melrose Avenue through mid-August. Southbound traffic will be routed to the northbound lanes while the new southbound lanes are being constructed. No northbound traffic will be allowed. Construction will be completed by mid-August and open for traffic before the resumption of classes for fall semester.
During construction, traffic for the Pharmacy Building, West Campus Residence Halls and the Field House will be detoured east to Byington Road and then north on Grand Avenue.
Traffic for the UIHC Emergency Room will follow a detour north on Grand Avenue Court and then west on Grand Avenue.
This project is a joint project between the City of Iowa City, The University of Iowa and the Iowa Department of Transportation. It will provide turning lanes for traffic into the new Melrose Parking Facility and turning lanes for traffic onto Melrose.
