As part of the massive Canal Boulevard rebuild from the Yew Avenue roundabout to Veterans Way, Canal is now blocked to all but local residents along that stretch of Canal. The blockage starts at Quartz and goes all the way to Veterans Way.
Knife River Construction will be re-doing to this part of Canal what they did with the lower section of Canal south of Odem to Yew Avenue. There will be street improvements, adding curbs, sidewalks, bike lanes and replacing water main pipes. Construction will continue on the southern section of the Homestead Canal Trail.
This section of the Canal Boulevard Project will last through the months of July, August, September and October.
The whole project is expected to be complete by next Spring. When it’s done, it’s going to be quite the boulevard. There’s likely to be a lot of new building construction along what has been previously a rather neglected part of town. But neglected no more.
