Traffic Control for the Czech Village Blues special event

1st Street W Improvements Beginning

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – Starting Monday, August 14, improvements begin on 1st Street W. The project stretches from A Avenue NW to 8th Avenue SW. The project includes a road diet, which will allow for additional on-street parking. The current layout of the road includes two travel lanes in each direction. Upon completion of the project, traffic will consist of one lane in each direction, with a center turn lane. New bike lanes and on-street parking will also be added on both sides of the road. Crews will apply a new asphalt sealer to extend the service life of the road and allow for the application of new pavement markings.

Traffic impacts during the course of construction will include lane reductions for both northbound and southbound traffic; one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions. Business access will remain open. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-September.
