Council Street NE Improvements Begin

Starting on Wednesday, April 10, improvements will begin on Council Street NE. Council Street will be closed to thru-traffic between 42nd Street and 48th Street. Access will be available for residential property owners; all other traffic will be required to detour. 

St. Pius Access
Both entrances to St. Pius currently remain open; those entering the school or church are asked to access Council Street from the north side (off Collins Road) to get to St. Pius, starting on Wednesday, April 10, and continuing for approximately two weeks. Additional updates will be issued as construction staging changes. 

Noelridge Park Access
Park and pool amenities will remain open and accessible during the project.

Starting Wednesday, April 10, please access the park amenities using the following routes: 

  • Noelridge Greenhouse | Entrance open and can be accessed off Council Street from Collins Road. 
  • Pavilion & Playground: | Entrance open and can be accessed off Council Street from 42nd Street. 

About the Project
The work starting on Wednesday will focus on the Noelridge Park Trail. Paving work will take place on the trail segment that runs alongside Council Street (between the park pavilion entrance and 42nd Street). The trail will be temporarily closed in this location while work is underway. 

The entire project stretches from Collins Road to south of 46th Street, and includes complete pavement reconstruction, drainage/utility improvements, sidewalk, and trail improvements. As part of the project, the Noelridge trail will be extended north along Council Street, from the park pavilion entrance to the Noelridge greenhouse entrance. The project is expected to be completed this construction season.
