Tree work will close segment of Washington Street in Iowa City

Five bus routes will be detoured during the morning closure

IOWA CITY — A portion of Washington Street is scheduled to be closed Monday morning, causing drivers and five bus routes to make detours.

Crews will be removing ash trees in the 200 block of Washington, weather permitting. The city announced that Washington between Dubuque and Linn streets is expected to be closed until late morning or early afternoon.

The bus routes affected by the closure starting at 6 a.m. are outbound Court Hill, outbound Towncrest, outbound Mall, outbound Lakeside and outbound Seventh Avenue.

These routes will detour using Clinton Street to Burlington Street, instead of traveling eastbound on Washington Street. The bus stops at Washington and Linn streets (No. 7200) and at Washington and Gilbert streets (No. 7201) will not be serviced during the time of the detour.

The inbound trips of these routes are not affected.

The city advised drivers to find alternative routes during the brief closure.
