    KWTV had a story on their 10 o'clock news (nearly 4 hours ago) about "Bricktown Canal Extension". They really need to learn to label their stories correctly since it's actually a river extension to the Bricktown Canal...SMH.

    The naming issue is as much on the city, it is still called canal zone G since before the current design was chosen and still called that in most documents. If we wanted to get really technical it is a lake extension anyway.

    FYI - They've changed the season pass a bit, but I like it more.... Instead of June-Aug for $75 you can now do March-Oct for $85.

    Went down to the boathouse side of the "river/lake extension" and snapped a pic of it. It was around 5pm so I opted not to go to the other side cause I wasn't feeling messing with traffic.

    This should be good in sucking people into Bricktown and vice versa.

    Perhaps some signage similar to the signs leading into bricktown under the tracks.

    Bricktown on one side, Boathouse Row on the other.

    While I think that would be great, thought it was surprisingly hard to get ODOT to allow lights to be hung from the bridge (that are of a type they hang on other bridges), who knows they might not fight so hard against painting signage on each side.

    I like the wording "American Indian Cultural Center Gateway". Like to know what that's all about.

    I am very optimistic that the state will fund the completion of the Native American Cultural Center. It needs to be finished and would be a great east anchor to the river. Unfortunately it is a very politically charged debate.

    This makes it sound like it's even presently (or ever been) possible, which it is not.

    You never jumped off the canal taxi while it is turning around and sprinted across I-40?

    Your life must be boring.

    Lol, or you could be parked in that lot and take your car drive over. This kind of defeats the purpose of a water taxi though.

    A few pictures here from Sunday evening:

    Notice on the east side of the river extension under I-40 is the reinforced steel they're laying for concrete sidewalk work.


    A wider view.


    What this concrete item is, I do not know. Snowman??

    Its part of the sewer system. There is a line directly below that drains into the river canel through an opening in the wall. They will probably put a top with a manhole over that.

    Did you mean the storm water system? It wouldn't seem correct to have untreated sewer dumping into the river.

    Yes, lol. I think the term "sewer" is still correct in this case? There are just two kinds of sewers.

    Yes, lots of people call the storm sewer just "sewer".

    Obviously, it's completely separate from the waste lines out of homes and businesses.
