Dubuque Street Traffic Changes Announced for Hawkeye 2016 Home Football Games
August 29, 2016
The City of Iowa City announced that Dubuque Street will temporarily convert to a one-way road after home Hawkeye Football games to accommodate heavy traffic leaving Iowa City.
Pre-game, traffic on Dubuque Street will remain as is under the current Gateway Project configuration, with one lane of traffic in each direction from Foster Road to Ronalds Street. Post-game, Dubuque Street will only allow northbound, one-way traffic between Foster and Park Roads. There will be no south-bound traffic between Foster Road and Park Road during this time.
Impacts to CAMBUS fixed route and bionic service will vary depending upon whether the home football game occurs during a university holiday.
