Cedar Rapids, IA: Crossing upgrades to deliver a quiet zone

5 Apr

The first of many active open crossings in downtown Cedar Rapids are likely to be upgraded next year [2017} as the City converts presently one-way streets to two-way configuration. These changes and the desire to introduce a quiet zone will cost up to USD500,000 per crossing. First in line are the crossings on Second and Third avenues with First Fourth and Fifth expected to follow as funding permits. In due course Sixth and Seventh avenues may follow. Union Pacific Railroad is presently preparing estimates.
