On Monday, Aug. 28, construction will begin on widening the sidewalk along Scenic Drive North on the 5 Avenue North overpass.
Cyclists and pedestrian traffic will be accommodated during construction, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year, weather permitting. Motorists are asked to drive with caution in this area and follow posted construction signs and detours.
The first phase of pathway construction along Scenic Drive North was completed in 2016, between downtown and 9 Avenue North. Upgrades to this overpass will include widening the sidewalk, installing higher railings, and installing concrete barriers between the sidewalk and vehicle traffic.
Similar sidewalk upgrades are planned in 2018 for the Highway 3 overpass along Scenic Drive North.
