December 2023

The LID 7 contractor has installed the temporary parking lot for the New Territory Dog Park, and it is open to the public. The main parking lot is now closed and will serve as the primary construction access for the duration of the project. The contractor will modify the parking lot entrance and build an access ramp over the levee to accommodate all construction traffic. Please remain aware of construction activity when traveling on this segment of New Territory Blvd.

The contractor has also finished tree clearing and started riverbank excavation at the upstream end of the project. Construction of the steel sheetpile weirs and delivery of stone riprap will begin in the new year, after the levee access ramp is complete. Construction is currently scheduled to be complete in December 2024. Videos of the construction progress from November and December are also available online.
