UPDATE: Cedar Rapids road re-opens after closing due to high river levels

Posted: Updated:

Otis Road SE, between 15th Street SE and High Drive SE, has re-opened after being closed due to high river levels.

The city closed the road on Monday after heavy rains last week in the Cedar River basin in northern Iowa forced the river to rise.

The river crested in Cedar Rapids on Tuesday at 11.98 feet according to the National Weather Service.

As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service said the river was at 10.02 feet and falling.
