From the City of Cedar Rapids Iowa Government:
Reconstruction at Chandler Street, 20th Street and the entrance to Jefferson High School is progressing nicely. Weather permitting, utilities and pavement prep will be completed by the end of this week, with new pavement going in next week. The new pavement and sidewalk should be constructed by the end of July, well in advance of the start of the school year. While pavement placement at the high school entrance is underway, storm sewer and water main will be installed along the Chandler Street SW loop.
The contractors have nearly completed reconstruction of the pedestrian crosswalk at 20th Street and 16th Avenue, and have begun reconstructing driveways off 16th Avenue, which is precursor work to adding new sidewalk on the north side of 16th Avenue. This new sidewalk will close a sidewalk gap and provide improved pedestrian access to Jefferson High School and businesses.
