IOWA CITY — Corridor residents woke up to slick conditions Wednesday morning with a thin sheet of ice covering streets, sidewalks and anything else exposed to the precipitation.

Icy roads prompted the Iowa City Community School District to cancel classes for the day. The Cedar Rapids, Marion Independent, Linn-Mar and College Community school districts are all on a two-hour late start schedule.

Both the Iowa City and Coralville transit systems temporarily suspended services until about 9 a.m. Wednesday. The City of Iowa City also suspended curbside collection services on Wednesday. Residents who have their trash, recycling and yard waste typically picked up on Wednesdays will have their trash and recycling picked up Thursday and their yard waste picked up next week.
