Construction in Port Riverwalk

Road re-alignment plus housing interest list now available


Several roads have been removed in the area of Avocet Street near Coon Rapids Boulevard, as part of redevelopment in this area known as “Port Riverwalk.” Local access is currently affected by construction for this project. The frontage road on the south side of Coon Rapids Boulevard has been removed and several local streets in the area are being realigned.

This construction began in late summer of 2019 and will continue through 2020. Grading and infrastructure work is on hold for the winter and access to existing neighborhoods is provided through a temporary asphalt roadway connecting Avocet Street, Zilla Street and East River Road.

Model homes are expected to be completed by the summer of 2020. Interested homebuyers can register their email address to stay informed on the Centra Homes website.
