Major construction on the $4.5M Canal Boulevard Reconstruction (Robert E. Lee Boulevard – Amethyst Street) project was completed in March, and contractor Palmisano Conctruction began addressing final clean-up and punch list items. The scope of work for the project, which started in summer 2019 included replacing the drain, sewer and water lines, rebuilding the street entirely, repairing sidewalks and curbs, installing a dedicated bike lane, and installing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-complaint curb ramps on the north- and southbound lanes.
Information about this project was made available at a pre-construction public meeting held in June 2019. Access the presentation here.
