These photos show the progress made on the project during the past three weeks or so, since the arrival of spring-like weather.

The new section — known as Phase 2 — will not be connected to the existing Riverwalk in Veterans Memorial Park (the Slab), but will be near the Birmingham Condominiums and the Avalon Shelton apartment complex.

The new section will be 900 linear feet long and end behind the Avalon building for now, but eventually should be extended toward the dam at the northern end of Canal Street.

It is expected the new section will open sometime in the next month or two.
