Cambus eliminates Hawk Court 1 stop

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Because of construction on the University of Iowa’s Hawkeye court, Cambus has permanently ended service to the Hawkeye Court 1 stop, effective today.

Two existing apartment buildings in the Hawkeye Court area are to be demolished because they were damaged by the 2008 flood. In all, 252 apartment units are to be replaced by new structures, likely to be completed by 2014.

Cambus director Brian McClatchey said the closure of the stop will have little to no negative effects on the residents of the remaining Hawkeye Court apartments.

“Mainly, it’s a safety concern,” he said. “The stop is not really needed anymore; there will be no sidewalk leading up to it.”

The two bus stops in Hawkeye Court are less than half a block away from each other, so the closure of the Hawkeye Court 1 stop is nothing more than a “minor inconvenience for a few people,” McClatchey said. He said service to the Hawkeye Court 2 stop will continue.

McClatchey said a new road is to be created along with the construction of the new apartment buildings, and a new bus stop will be established.

McClatchey said no other route changes are being made.
