Madison and Burlington Streets Construction

Burlington Street, including the Madison Street intersection, will remain closed through the end of August for a City of Iowa City construction project. Work includes resurfacing Burlington Street, replacing signal poles, and paving sidewalks and driveways. The estimated date for project substantial completion is August 28, 2020; however, there may be some temporary lane/sidewalk closures beyond that date to accommodate restoration items.


Current and upcoming University of Iowa and City of Iowa City construction projects will impact pedestrian and vehicle travel along portions of Burlington and Madison streets, including their intersection, now through fall 2021. Lane reductions are currently in place along Madison Street, between Burlington and Washington streets. Temporary closures may occur. Sign up for construction and access alerts to stay informed.
