City Centre Construction Activity
Construction has begun on the City Centre Public Infrastructure Improvement Project, Phase 1B. Throughout the project Brentwood Drive east of 84th Street will be closed just past McDonald's north driveway, which is necessary to maintain access to that business during construction.

Businesses located along 83rd Avenue, such as McDonald's, Fazoli's and Taco Bell can be accessed via Giles Road. This project will be complete within approximately six weeks
