The Cedar River flows through downtown Cedar Rapids Thursday afternoon, with water levels approaching flood stage.

With river levels projected to rise, City takes protective steps

Areas north of Cedar Rapids have received quite a bit of rain over the weekend, and are forecast to get more.  Because of this, the Cedar River is expected to begin rising on Tuesday and then crest Thursday at 14.7 feet. Minor flood stage for the Cedar River is 12 feet, so we will be preparing for action similar to the last event in May.

2nd Avenue SE at the Cedar River to be closed beginning June 17

In order to build better protection from flooding, 2nd Avenue SE will be closed to thru traffic from 1st Street SW to 1st Street SE beginning June 17.  The temporary closure of the bridge will allow floodgate construction on the east side of the river, a key element of Cedar Rapids’ Flood Control System.
