Lincoln Highway in Cedar Rapids part of upcoming Auto Row historic district

A segment of Second Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which was also the Lincoln Highway, will be incorporated into a historic district celebrating its past as Auto Row. In return, the city will be allowed to demolish a 50-year old parking garage damaged in a 2008 flood, also deemed historic but widely considered an eyesore.

The decision to create the Second Avenue SE Automobile Row Historic District came more than five months after the last intact buildings from Second Avenue’s auto row days were demolished.
