Closure of Eastern Half of Pennsylvania Ave. & Northwest Arterial Intersection Starts Saturday, June

The western half of the Pennsylvania Ave. and Northwest Arterial intersection will re-open and the eastern half of the intersection will close beginning Saturday, June 25. This closure is expected to last approximately three weeks.

  • Northwest Arterial northbound and southbound traffic through the intersection will be maintained. 

  • The detour route for Pennsylvania Ave. eastbound traffic west of the arterial will continue to be Heacock Rd. to Asbury Rd. to John F. Kennedy Rd. Note, Pennsylvania Ave. eastbound traffic west of the arterial may turn right at the Northwest Arterial intersection to travel southbound toward Dodge St.

  • Northwest Arterial southbound traffic may turn right onto Pennsylvania Ave. to travel westbound.

  • A posted detour will reroute Pennsylvania westbound traffic east of the arterial to John F. Kennedy Rd. to Asbury Rd. to travel north of Pennsylvania Ave. or to John F. Kennedy Rd. to Dodge St. (HWY 20) to travel south of Pennsylvania Ave.

Residents and businesses on the detour routes should prepare for increased traffic during the closure. 


See closure and detour map.

After the eastern half of Pennsylvania Ave. intersection is completed, the Asbury Rd. intersection will be reconstructed. Those detour details will be shared closer to the closure. The Asbury Rd. intersection reconstruction will be completed before school starts in August 2022.



This intersection reconstruction is part of the
 Northwest Arterial State of Good Repair Project. For details, visit www.cityofdubuque.org/nwarterial.
