The City of Asheville recently issued several important updates about the redevelopment of the River Arts District. Construction activities in the River Arts District will be kicking in to high gear beginning this week. Here are some important updates for local residents to keep in mind.

7/18/16 – 9/16/16

On Monday, July 18th, utility relocation efforts began along Riverside Drive. The first utility project will be a gas line replacement by PSNC Energy that is scheduled to conclude by September 16th, 2016.

This project will lead to significant road closures in the area.

August 2016

Tree clearing in the River Arts District will begin in August. The City of Asheville is advising residents to expect additional road closures related to this project. The city also announced that parking on city property will be “significantly reduced” starting in August of 2016.

March 2017

Both of the above projects are in preparation for the start of construction on the River Arts District Transportation Improvement Project (RADTIP) in March of 2017.
