Collins Road underpass awarded $1.5 million
CEDAR RAPIDS – Plans to build an underpass of Collins Road at Lindale Mall are $1.5 million closer to reality. The underpass received the largest of 11 Clean Air Attainment Program funding awards from the Iowa Transportation Commission on Tuesday. The project would let pedestrians and bicyclists travel between Lindale Mall and the stores and homes to the north of Collins Road NE. The intersection will become more difficult to cross, because of plans to widen the stretch of Collins Road to six through lanes and five turn lanes.
