Construction has begun to build a new exit driveway for the Landmark Center as part of the Muddy River restoration project.

Construction began Monday and will last until June 22 to build a new exit for vehicles leaving the Landmark Center and traveling onto Park Drive.

The construction is expected to cause minor delays and any diversions or detours will be controlled with barrels, cones and police details as needed, according to the Army Corps of Engineers, which is leading the project.

Fencing will protect the work zone and the existing exit will continue to be used until the new drive is complete. The existing exit will be eliminated once traffic is switched to the new driveway.

The new exit will allow exiting vehicles to take a right onto Park Drive, get on the Riverway, or pick up Fenway once traffic around the Landmark Center is realigned and the jug handle removed as part of the restoration project.

The traffic changes are just part of the $93 million project designed to prevent and reduce flooding, re-open parts of the Muddy River that have been covered over the years, install larger culverts to improve water flow, and make other habitat and landscape improvements to the parklands surrounding the river between the Riverway and Avenue Louis Pasteur.
