CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -

The City of Cedar Rapids has asked residents within the City limits west of Edgewood Road on Ellis Road NW to voluntarily evacuate.  By 7 AM on Friday morning, there are ten homes in this area that will have restricted access due to flood waters.


 


 


Based on previous flooding events, these homes become surrounded by water when the Cedar River reaches 18.5 feet.


 


The Cedar Rapids Police Department went door-to-door to provide notification to the affected residents.  This was completed around 7:30 p.m.


 


On a related matter in the area, please note that the Edgewood Road bridge will likely be closed by Friday morning due to the closure of the Ellis Boulevard and Edgewood Road intersection.  Motorists should seek alternate routes.
