Melrose Avenue down to one lane after heat causes road failure

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Melrose Avenue at the northbound U.S. 218 off ramp in Iowa City has been reduced to one lane after hot temperatures cause a failure.

The pavement needs repaired after recent heat caused the failure.

One lane will remain open, though both lanes need repaired.

The lanes will be fixed one at a time.

Left turns will not be allowed from the ramp to travel westbound on Melrose Ave. because the pavement in the left turning lane is damaged.

Work is expected to be finished by Monday, June 27th.

Until then, drivers are advised to take a different route and use caution when driving through the work area.
