Lane closures on two Iowa City streets

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Traffic along two Iowa City streets will be reduced to only one lane to trim trees away from electrical lines.

On Friday, December 12, the northbound on Mormon Trek Boulevard will have only one lane from Benton Street to Melrose Avenue.

City crews will also shut down an eastbound lane on Melrose Ave for two days from Camp Cardinal Road to Mormon Trek Boulevard. 


The city says lane closures will be a moving operation as crews trim trees near overhead electrical lines for MidAmerican Energy Company.

Workers expect to reopen the lane on Melrose on Friday December 17.

This work will occur during the hours of 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Motorists are to allow extra travel time when traveling in this area as delays may be possible. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling in all construction areas.
