Work to Begin on East Side Downtown Riverwalk
|Date:||June 5, 2018|
Janke General Contractors will begin work efforts on their portion of the Eastside Downtown Riverwalk project on Monday, June 11, 2018. These work efforts include removal and replacement of the river wall and pedestrian bridge; installation of retaining walls; river bottom dredging; installation of concrete sidewalk and handicap access ramps; and restoration of disturbed areas.
Prior to commencement of the removal of the south pedestrian bridge, an additional notification will be distributed with updated project details and information regarding a public informational meeting.
The sidewalk on the east side of the river along Veterans Avenue from East Washington Street/STH 33 to Water Street will remained closed to pedestrians during this time, although the north pedestrian bridge will remain open throughout most of the construction period. The construction is expected to be completed by early November 2018. Pedestrians and bicyclists are reminded to abide by all traffic control signs and devices as well as be aware of ongoing construction activities. Alternate routes should be planned to avoid construction whenever possible.
