CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – Starting this afternoon, the south entrance to the Fountains shopping center off Edgewood Road will be closed for approximately three weeks. The Fountains north entrance is open and accessible to traffic. The Blairs Ferry entrance just east of Edgewood Road is also open. This closure was originally scheduled to happen on August 6, but was rescheduled.
The work is associated with roadway improvements on Edgewood Road that began in June. The project stretches between HWY 100 and Blairs Ferry Road, and includes traffic signal relocation, turn lanes, new decorative medians, sidewalk modifications, and sidewalk ramp construction. The project is scheduled to be completed October 2019. Lane reductions on Edgewood Road will be in effect during the project.
