The City of Redmond is upgrading South Canal Blvd. to meet current standards for arterials. This long-awaited project replaces deteriorating pavement on a major route that is an important part of the city’s street network.
The South Canal Blvd. “makeover” also includes:
- Left turn lanes at busy intersections
- Curbs, sidewalks and bicycle lanes
- Stormwater collection system
- A new bicycle/pedestrian path alongside Homestead Canal
- Street trees and landscaping
- A new 12- and 18-inch water main to replace aging pipelines

Traffic Detours During Construction
Rebuilding the street will take 13 months, with project completion set for April 2019. Sections of South Canal Blvd. will be closed temporarily during construction, but local access to area homes and businesses will remain open.
Mass Casualty Training
North Section (SW Canal Blvd to SW Salmon Ave - SW Obsidian Ave and 11th Street)
Construction crews have been constructing retaining walls along South Canal for the last few days and will continue as weather allows. The weather forecast for the foreseeable future should allow for concrete placement for sidewalks and driveway approaches. Expect to see grading crews finishing aggregate base rock as the temperatures approach the upper 40s.
The current closure of Veterans Way will remain in place to allow for scheduled signal improvements. Construction crews will maintain the project corridor to allow local residents continued access to their property.
Thank you for your continued patience.
Expect phased road closures March 2018-April 2019
Sections of South Canal Blvd. will be closed temporarily during construction, but local access to area homes and businesses will remain open.
Information about construction activities and closures will be distributed to every area residence and business.
