Old bridge to be removed this fall, new bridge to be complete in 2025

It’s time to awaken the “Sleeping Giant.”

The demolition of the old Cedar Rapids and Iowa City — CRANDIC — Railway Bridge will begin this fall to clear a path for a new bridge that’s part of the $20 million ConnectCR project.

The old bridge partially collapsed in the 2008 flood and is being removed for the new Alliant Energy LightLine pedestrian-bike bridge spanning the Cedar River near Mount Trashmore. Once complete, the bridge — previously dubbed the “Sleeping Giant” — will connect the New Bohemia and Czech Village districts.
