Jordan Avenue closes between 10th and Seventh streets for water main replacement

Both lanes of Jordan Avenue between 10th and Seventh streets will be closed from May 20 until June 28 at the latest, according to a City of Bloomington press release.

The closing is part of a program through City of Bloomington Utilities to update water delivery infrastructure, according to the release. More than 75% of Bloomington’s water mains are over 50 years old, and the water main along Jordan Avenue was a priority to be replaced.

The closure will affect campus bus routes A and E, according to a tweet from IU Campus Bus.

Buses will not stop at the School of Education. The A route will divert to North Union Street and will come back to North Jordan Avenue via East Seventh Street.

A detour via Union Street will provide access to nearby buildings such as Herman B Wells Library and Wright Quad, according to the release.

The Wells Library parking lot can be accessed from Seventh Street.
