MedQuarter's 2021 Parkway Improvement Project in Full Swing
Aug 19, 2021
Improvements along the north and south sides of 1st Avenue East from 10th to 12th Street began in early August in the MedQuarter Regional Medical District. This project is in partnership with the City of Cedar Rapids and will include pavement repairs, curb and gutter repairs, sidewalk replacement and ADA improvements, replacement of traffic signals at 1st Avenue & 12th Street/Coe Road as well as decorative brick pavers, tree planting, street light upgrades and new grass. All which will lead to a more appealing and beautified strip for passersby and foot traffic. First Avenue will remain open to traffic, with single lane closures. Access will be maintained to all businesses and medical facilities. Construction is scheduled to be completed by late fall 2021.
