In coordination with on-going construction to the University of Iowa Main Library, the bus stop facing the building’s east entrance will remain closed until the start of fall classes.

Cambus director ‪Brian McClatchey said to date, no particular concerns have arisen from the relocated stop and a change in ridership to and from the area hasn’t occurred. However, he said one slight benefit has come from the relocation.   

“Students like it because it gets them closer to the Rec Center,” he said.

The new east entrance is anticipated to be the primary gathering space for students waiting for the bus and will include large television monitors tracking the BONGO bus service.

‪A single lane of southbound Madison Street and an adjacent sidewalk near the east side of the Main Library closed April 22 for the construction work. It was previously set to open Aug. 2.

Construction on the library’s $14.6 million 24-hour Learning Commons space began last summer, and the renovation is set to wrap up in December. 

The project will provide roughly 37,000-square-feet of space with the ability to fit the needs of 500 students with ‪ 18 study-group spaces, 100 computer desks, and a 45-seat TILE classroom. Additionally, it will be available 24 hours, five days a week.
