Several parking lots reopen and Cambus routes resume Monday

Receding water will allow several University of Iowa parking lots to reopen Monday, June 23.

Cambus will resume its regular routes on Monday, once again servicing Madison Street and all other stops that are not on roads closed due to flooding. The shuttle service from the Sycamore Mall parking lot to campus will discontinue Monday.

On the east side of Iowa River, parking lots 8 and 11 (partial), 20, 51, 64 (partial), the IMU Parking Ramp and the North Campus Parking Ramp will reopen.

On the West side of the Iowa River, Lot 25, half of Lot 55 (Hancher Commuter) and the Hydraulics Lab parking meters will reopen.

Permit and public parking areas that remain closed are:

East side of Iowa River: Lot 3 (Library Lot), 7, 11 (partial), 18, 53, 56 (Mayflower), 64 (partial), Main Library parking meters, IMU parking meters and Mayflower parking meters.

West side of Iowa River: lots 16, 17, 19, 28, 42, half of Lot 55 (Hancher Commuter), Art Building parking meters, Theatre parking meters and Music parking meters.

Everyone assigned to a parking space that has flooded was offered an alternative – a new parking space, or a free transit pass. Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the Parking and Transportation Office at 319-335-1475

Students and employees are still encouraged to walk, bike or bus to campus if possible.

Also starting Monday, a special Cambus route will provide service from Parklawn Residence Hall to Hardin Library, where riders can transfer to the Pentacrest or Red Route. Stops will be made every 15 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Cambus will make every effort to keep routes running on time, but riders are asked to remain patient when buses are delayed due to traffic congestion. Please contact the Cambus dispatcher at 319-335-8633 with questions.
