More residential and commercial structures that were severely damaged in the flood of 2008 are scheduled for demolition this spring, Cedar Rapids officials said.

Two demolition contracts were recently awarded to DW Zinser for $674,330 to demolish 39 residential and 12 commercial structures, with five adjoining parking lots, during the time period from April 1 to May 31.

The exact timing of these demolitions will be determined by availability of equipment and weather conditions, officials said in a news release. The demolitions will be funded by Community Disaster Block Grant (CDBG) funds and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds.

To date, the city has demolished 1,088 residential structures, 539 accessory structures and 93 commercial structures.
