INDICE DE GALERIAS
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa will soon begin taking down flood barriers surrounding campus buildings.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/12xAKP7) that the university announced the decision Friday, saying the threat of further flooding has diminished.
The university is taking bids on a project to remove the flood barriers, make repairs to sidewalks and pedestrian walkways and landscape the areas of campus affected by the barriers. The university already has a contract in place to remove the floodwall that was built around Art Building West.
The university estimates that the cleanup and restoration process will cost $2.3 million, including $1.25 million to remove barriers and sandbags across campus and another $1 million to restore sidewalks and other areas that were turned into construction zones.
