Will the City Council close Second Avenue SE between 10Th and 12Th street for Medical Mall?

Skywalks an Alternative to Closing Second Avenue Won’t Work for PCI - KCRG-TV
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Closing a stretch of Second Avenue SE is necessary to facilitate patient flow through the Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa’s proposed new medical “mall” at 10th Street SE and Second Avenue SE, the physicians group has said ...

The group and other representatives of the new Cedar Rapids Medical District are holding open houses: to discuss the Medical District as well as PCI’s plans to build the mall inside the district.

  • Wednesday, August 4Th from 4 to 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 5Th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Open Houses are in The Ballroom at the Crowne Plaza Five Seasons Hotel

Our business will be impacted, since we are located at 613 Second Avenue SE. For example, driving from Daniels Park neighorhood down Central Point Road NE to 13Th Street SE, we often cut down Second Avenue SE to return to our offices.

The ideal of cutting off vehicle, walking and bike traffic should always be carefully discussed, since it often has negative impacts on quality of life and functionality of neighborhoods and the habits of people.
