SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council voted to move forward on possibly changing the one-way section of Washington Street to a two-way street at its meeting Tuesday night.

Discussion in favor of the change focused on freeing up streets downtown such as Iowa Avenue and giving more business to downtown business owners.

Loading zones will be taken away if the change is implemented.

Concerns were raised about buses being unable to unload students on the street to the many events at the Englert Theatre.

City councilors are awaiting further discussion from the city staff.
