Beginning Monday, January 20, Riverside Drive will be closed from Lafayette Boulevard to Michigan Street as the final phase of construction gets underway at Leeper Park. The anticipated reopening date for the street will be Friday, May 15. The detour route will be Bartlett Street.
During this phase of construction, work will include new sidewalks, replacement of storm sewers, an overlook to view the river and a raised walkway connecting Leeper Park to the overlook, which will slow traffic and create a safer environment for pedestrians.
