Check on the Outdoor Pool’s Status

This summer, our outdoor pool has having trouble keeping up with the hundreds of swimmers using it every day this summer, requiring early closures when the deep end becomes too cloudy for our lifeguards to see all the way to the bottom of the deep end. This is a safety issue we cannot compromise on and requires us to close the outdoor pool.

If you want to check on the status of the outdoor pool before you arrive, please call the recreation department’s front desk at (319) 626-5716.

Closure: Cherry Street just west of Ranshaw Way

Beginning Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Cherry Street will close just west of Ranshaw Way. The closure is required so crews can reconstruct the west side of the intersection.

The contractor is required to limit the length of the closure, and expects the work to last about three weeks.

During the closure, traffic will be detoured using Jones Boulevard, Penn Street, Elm Ridge Drive and Zeller Street. All businesses will remain open.

This closure does not directly affect the pedestrian underpass, which will not close with this work. However, coming work to add sidewalks along Ranshaw Way will require the pedestrian tunnel’s closure. The contractor expects a timeline to be available for that work later this week.

Drivers are asked to use caution around the work site, allow extra travel time, and find alternative routes when possible. Details and updates on this and other North Liberty construction projects are available at
