Construction continues on the two-way conversion project in downtown Cedar Rapids. Beginning Monday, June 11, the Downtown Library will not be accessible via 5th Avenue. Patrons can access the parking lot through the entrance on 5th Street, but we ask you to be mindful of the traffic and construction. Access is limited to one car at a time due to the intersection which is under construction as well.
This is another step toward the transition to two-way streets on 4th and 5th Avenues, which will continue to cause impacts to the area around the Downtown Library this summer. Please continue to follow the City of Cedar Rapids for updates. Residents can sign up to receive text alerts on road closures at www.cityofcr.com/subscribe.
