Mayflower north visitor parking lot to close for work on Gateway Project through 2017

The north visitor parking lot located next to the University of Iowa’s Mayflower Residence Hall on Dubuque Street will close on Sunday, March 12, 2017 at noon for continued work on the Iowa City Gateway Project. 

It will remain closed through 2017. The meters will be hooded starting on the evening of Saturday, March 11.

The lot will instead be used for the University of Iowa Cambus turnaround. Cambus is currently using the access road at Terrell Mill Park to turnaround, but this access road will close for crews to begin work to elevate the southbound lanes of Dubuque Street this spring.

The lot is currently used as metered parking for visitors to the residence hall. During this time there is no alternative public parking for visitors. However, one ADA parking space will remain accessible throughout construction.

Visitors are reminded that parking in the bus and fire lane are prohibited and are subject to ticket or tow. 

The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation project that will elevate Dubuque Street while also raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge. To receive project updates sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions and follow the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter using #ICgateway. To learn more, visit
