The southernmost part of the Bricktown Canal and adjoining sidewalks will temporarily close July 17 while crews with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) knock down the old Interstate 40 crosstown bridge.

From July 17 through August 16, the canal and sidewalks located south of the small vehicle bridge across from the Marriott Residence Inn in lower Bricktown will be closed. The city says visitors will still be able to access the Centennial Land Run Statue by driving through the Bass Pro Shop parking lot. The canal closure will not affect parking, restaurants, or shops.

The Bricktown Water Taxi is also expected to operate its normal schedule, although full canal tours may be adjusted slightly during the construction period.

People with questions about the construction and closure can call the Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department at (405) 297-3882.
