CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) A Cedar Rapids road has been closed by flooding along the Cedar River.

A news release early Monday morning from Public Works Maintenance Manager Craig Hanson says Ellis Road NW was closed between Covington and Edgewood roads. Hanson blames ice on the Cedar River.

Officials say the Cedar River has had ice jams that caused road closures for five of the past 11 years.
