Upcoming road closures along C Avenue NE and Blairs Ferry Road will be necessary to allow the contractor to continue work on the Lindale Trail Extension Project. Local traffic should be aware impacts and anticipate travel delays.
Starting Monday, Oct. 3, the City of Cedar Rapids Solid Waste and Recycling Division will begin operating leaf vacuum trucks, running through Friday, Dec. 9. Residents can expect leaf collection every other week based on the quadrant where they live.
