Phase 1 of this project is due to start construction on November 1st, 2018. This first phase will be to remove part of the canal and construct the bridge. This work is estimated to take 3 - 4 weeks and the impact should be minimal to the surrounding homes. All access along Canal St. and Second St. will be maintained and there should be very little disruption to the streets other than delivery of materials for the new bridge.
Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in March 2019. This phase will be extending utilities across the canal for future development. In addition, landscaping will be removed to install sidewalks on the south side of Second St. and reconstruct driveways as indicated in the map below.
The Second Street and Canal Boulevard public meeting was held on March 2nd, 2017. This planned development located on the other side of the canal was given preliminary approval by the Hearings Examiner on August 3rd, 2017.
