For additional information regarding this transfer of jurisdiction, contact Scott Schram, District 4 engineer, at scott.schram@iowadot.gov or 712-243-3355.

RISE grant application approved
The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through construction or improvement of roads and streets. Iowa cities and counties are eligible for funding in the form of a grant, loan, or combination thereof. Projects must involve construction or improvement of a public roadway. There are two RISE project types: 1) Immediate Opportunity, and 2) Local Development. More information is available at www.iowadot.gov/systems_planning/rise.htm.

Cedar Rapids: Up to $546,707 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for a Local Development grant to assist in construction of approximately 2,400 feet of Earhart Lane Southwest and a left-turn lane on Earhart Lane Southwest located on the south side of town. This project is necessary to provide access to six lots totaling more than 62 acres for light industrial purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by November 2019.
