Hancher footbridge closed for repairs Sept. 27-28

The footbridge over the Iowa River near Hancher will be closed today, Monday, Sept. 27, and Tuesday, Sept. 28, for emergency repairs to a broken water main.

Signage will be in place noting the repairs. Pedestrians should use the Iowa Memorial Union footbridge, Park Road or Iowa Avenue as alternate routes.

The intent is to open the footbridge Monday night to ensure the safety of students who need to access the route during evening and overnight hours. However, the footbridge will be closed again Tuesday for the remaining repair work.
