Boating restricted on the Iowa River near Sturgis Ferry

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Starting Thursday, boating on the Iowa River south of the Sturgis Ferry Landing near the new McCollister Bridge.

Construction on the bridge will require a cable to be installed running across the river so barges can tie off.

The city says, depending on the water level, the river may be passable on the very west edge of the river and boaters will need to use that area to travel. But, the city recommends avoiding the area altogether.

The city plans to remove the cable in mid-July.
