IOWA CITY -- Weather permitting, on Thursday, December 6, 2018, tree trimming activities will be completed for MidAmerican Energy Company along Gilbert Street. This work will reduce northbound traffic on Gilbert Street to one lane between Southgate Avenue and Stevens Drive. In addition, southbound traffic on Gilbert Street will be reduced to one lane between Prentiss Street and First Street. This will be a moving operation and the lane reductions will move as work progresses down the roadway. It is anticipated normal traffic will resume by the end of the day.
Motorists are to take note of this work and allow extra travel time as delays may occur. As always, caution should be exercised when driving through all construction areas.
