RAGBRAI to cause heavy traffic near UIHC Saturday

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is warning there will be heavy traffic Saturday while RAGBRAI riders are in town.

Melrose Avenue, Hawkins Drive, Elliott Drive, and Newton Road are part of the RAGBRAI route. Drivers can still use these roads but should be aware there will be delays.

UIHC says patients and visitors should use Parking Ramp 3 to avoid bicycle traffic. They recommend taking US Highway 6 to Hawkins Drive to the Lot 43 North Drive.

The other ramps will be open but getting to them will be more difficult due to the bicycle traffic.

Bicycle traffic is expected to thin by the afternoon.
