Beginning at 9:00 am on Thursday, August 15, northbound 1st Avenue will be reduced to one lane from south of E. 2nd Avenue (near Burger King) to north of E. 7th Street (near Arby’s). Business and sidewalk access will be maintained at all times.
Note that the southbound lane that closed on August 5 will reopen on August 14, before the northbound lane reduction begins.
The lane reduction is necessary to make repairs on several storm sewer intake tops along the east side of 1st Avenue. The northbound lane reduction should end on August 21. All four lanes of 1st Avenue are to be open to traffic on August 23, the first day of school for the Iowa City Community School District.
