CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Construction begins today on one of the final flood replacement projects in Eastern Iowa.

This comes seven years after cities across Iowa were hit by the 2008 floods. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held this afternoon to start construction of the new Northwest Recreation Center.

The groundbreaking will begin at 1:00 p.m. at 1310 11th Street NW in Cedar Rapids. Leaders from the City of Cedar Rapids, the Cedar Rapids Community School District, and Northwest Neighbors Neighborhood Association will be in attendance.

It replaces the Time Check Recreation Center that was demolished following the floods. This is the final FEMA funded replacement project in Cedar Rapids.
