F Street Project Update
The F Street Project is expected to be complete in September 2014. Construction of the bridges and F Street underpass started June 3, 2013. The I-15 southbound D Street on-ramp will remain closed until the end of Phase 5 in August 2014. The bridge work that is currently taking place is construction of the D Street on-ramp and the I-15 southbound/U.S. 95 connector bridges and is 95 percent complete. All traffic currently is shifted to the new I-15 northbound and southbound bridges. Other work currently under way is F Street road work below the new I-15 bridges, along with the two towers.

Lorenzi Park Re-Opens
Lorenzi Park recently re-opened after a $30 million renovation. New amenities that were added to the 60-acre park include a new splash pad, children’s play areas, tennis courts, baseball fields and basketball courts, picnic and shade structures, and a new band shell on an island in the middle of one of the park’s twin lakes. The much-loved rose garden and gazebo are still in the park’s northwest corner and new historic markers now tell the park’s history.
