Construction Zone Parking
Downtown Cedar Rapids is currently undergoing several redevelopment and revitalization projects. If you have a question or concern about a particular area of downtown that is impacted by construction parking, please contact the Park Cedar Rapids office at 319-365-7275. Park Cedar Rapids staff are also available to assist contractors with meter hooding requests during normal business hours (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) Monday through Friday.
Meter Hoods allow for the short term reservation of on-street space to accommodate special events, contractors or others working in the vicinity. When reserved or “hooded,” individual spaces will be clearly marked with red meter hoods indicating "No Parking" or "Reserved Parking." Hooded meters are enforced 24/7. To have a meter hooded, please complete and turn in the Meter Hooding Agreement form to our office. For questions on pricing, please call 319-365-7275. Hooded Meter / Placard Rates and Rules can be found here.

Transportation options throughout Cedar Rapids provide residents and patrons a variety of means to discover all sectors of our community in a convenient, affordable manner.
Downtown Cedar Rapids experiences many exciting events throughout the year. Sometimes these events require specific "No Parking" regulations be enforced. Individual meters will be attached with poster size placards indicating specific time requirements. Placards are in place at minimum 12 hours in advance of the event. It is imperative that the time requirement be observed. Failure to observe posted signs can result in towing at the owner’s expense.
