State Grant to Support Cedar Rapids’ Roundabout

The City Council of Cedar Rapids has received a state grant in the amount of $514,160. The grant will be used to help build the first traffic roundabout on a city street at the intersection of Cottage Grove Avenue SE and Forest Drive SE in front of Washington High School.
