Community members are invited to help celebrate the completion of Phase 1B of construction on the site of the Education Corridor with a ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 27 at the intersection of Military Drive and River Avenue.
Officials broke ground on the first phase of the project in June 2011. The ribbon was cut in November 2011 at the completion of the first phase, which included sidewalks, roads, and roundabouts on the former mill site property on the north side of NIC’s campus.
Phase 1B, which includes the extension of River Avenue through to Northwest Boulevard, began in April 2012. This latest phase also includes a new traffic signal on Northwest Boulevard at River.
Various speakers from partnering agencies in the Education Corridor project will present.
