CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Work will begin this fall to relocate underground private utilities on Collins Road, in advance of roadway improvements scheduled next spring.

Starting the week of September 10, work will begin to relocate utilities between Twixt Town Road and Northland Avenue NE. Work will take place on the frontage roads along Collins Road. Lane restrictions and closures will be in place on frontage roads; all business access will remain open.

Next spring, work will begin to upgrade Collins Road to three through lanes in each direction between Twixt Town Road and the Lindale Mall / Collins Crossing entrance. The project will also include pedestrian accommodations, storm water quality improvements, landscaping, and street trees.
