Accessing and Exploring Our River

Iowa City is moving forward with a proposal to repair and enhance the riverfront near the Burlington Street Dam. These efforts will include flood mitigation, habitat restoration, and new recreation opportunities.

Proposed modifications to the Burlington Street Dam will:

  • Address public safety concerns
  • Improve riverbank stability
  • Improve fish habitat
  • Incorporate the City’s designation as a UNESCO City of Literature
  • Create recreation opportunities such as integration with the Iowa River Water Trail

City leaders have asked for your input on the proposed project. Please take a moment to learn more about the project and fill out a brief survey.  Your answers will help determine the future uses and look of the Iowa River and riverbank.
