More than $470,000 announced for CR Hwy 100 extension


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) --  Nearly half-a-million dollars will be coming for the Highway 100 Extension and improvements in Cedar Rapids.

The $471,609 will be used to help construct a new seven mile segment of the four-lane highway from Edgewood Road to U.S. Highway 30/218 and upgrade an existing 2.5 mile segment to U.S. Highway 151 on the east side of Cedar Rapids.

This funding, announced Monday, comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Highway Administration.  Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) is a senior member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds transportation initiatives.
