The schedule calls for that phase to be completed by December 1. Detours will take traffic south to Brinson and around to Butler Market or north along 18th to Scottsdale and Old Deschutes Market Road. School District bus routes have been altered to accommodate the detours.
An open house to provide residents with details of the project is set for Monday Aug. 20 10 a.m. at 10 Barrel Brewery and a second open house at 5 p.m. that day at Combined Communications, 63088 NE 18th ST. Phase II of the project includes improvements to Purcell Blvd with sidewalks and a new pedestrian crossing of the North Unit Canal. That will begin in early 2019.
