Time will be allotted to community members during the upcoming Iowa City City Council meeting on Oct. 1 to discuss the Gateway Project.

The $40 million project is a flood-mitigation effort that would elevate Dubuque Street as well as replace the Park Road Bridge with a structure that is longer and higher than the existing bridge.

The project, which has been more than five years in the making, has had several public discussions as well as meetings.

Funding for the project will include $10.5 million in federal and state money, as well as local-option sales tax, general-obligation bonds, and other revenues.

The new structures would be designed to reduce the effect of future floods.

The project is transitioning from the environmental assessment phase to the design phase, and fundamental design parameters are being established.

The project will also be discussed during the council’s work session on Tuesday.
