UNI Steam Tunnel Project

27th Street Closure - UNI Updated


Beginning Monday, April 6th, 2020, the University of Northern Iowa and their contractor will be closing W 27th Street near Panther Parkway in Cedar Falls for their steam tunnel project. In order for the contractor to begin the work, a full road closure will be required. The road closure will be in effect until August, depending on the weather. A detour will be setup utilizing Hudson Road, W. 31st Street, and W. Greenhill Road. Access will be maintained to UNI’s parking lots and also The Quarters at Cedar Falls apartment complex.

For safety’s sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work. Attached you will find a map with the closure area highlighted.

If you have any questions or concerns during the course of construction, please contact Steve Pavelec with the University of Northern Iowa listed below:
