Beginning 10 a.m. Friday, February 8th through 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 12th Convention Center Boulevard will be closed between the river bound and lake bound lanes of Calliope Streets to erect the 75 foot steel beams that will support the canopy from the Transportation Center to the Convention Center over Convention Center Boulevard. Traffic will be re-routed to South Peters which remains two way between the two Calliope Streets.
The HOV lane will remain open during this period.
Motorists are advised to consider alternate routes and be aware of temporary directional signage in the area.
The new lanes of Convention Center Boulevard are expected to reopen sometime in July when construction will then shift to developing the 7.5 acre pedestrian park.
