This photo is at the north west corner of the Iowa Avenue bridge. The bicycle path that goes under the bridge had been flooded. The bridge was closed to automobile traffic, but bicycles and pedestrians were crossing it just fine.
By mid-day it was very difficult to get around Iowa City by car. Traffic was at a standstill on the available roads. The above photo shows cars that look like they are parked, but they are all in line stretched to the horizon waiting for the light to change. This view is looking west down Prentis Street from Gilbert Street.
Just east of the Highway 6 bridge, on the east side of the Iowa River, the above view is looking to the east where the river started flowing over Highway 6. Hills Bank is the brown building in distance on the right. It was possible to continue east on Highway 6, but only through about 7 inches of water (or walking along the meridian in the middle).
The above photo is a view looking west from South Gilbert Street (about two blocks south of Highway 6).
Gilbert Street turns into Waterfront Drive just south of Highway 6. Hills Bank is to the right (not shown). This view is looking south toward the Aldi grocery store seen to the left.
