The seven-month-long closure of a section of Goetz Road, the main thoroughfare connecting Canyon Lake and Quail Valley, promises to reroute commutes and challenge some area business owners.

The shutdown will create a temporary division between Canyon Lake and Quail Valley, causing residents of Quail Valley to take a 1 ½-mile detour if they wish to access Canyon Lake. Some residents of Quail Valley expressed discomfort at the thought of taking a different, slightly longer route to reach Interstates 15 and 215.

The closing of a small but well-traveled section of Goetz Road that stretches from Canyon Lake Drive to just south of Newport Road will allow work crews to start widening Goetz to four lanes and to build a new bridge that will eventually cross Salt Creek near the intersection of Newport and Goetz roads.

  1. Have I been missing it or has someone reported on the completion of the Newport re-alignment? Are we to assume it will open when they close the Goetz road? We heard a lot of incorrect dates now nothing. What is up??

  2. Newport Rd has not been totally realigned yet. But it sounds like when Goetz Rd closes, they'll open up the new intersection between Berea Rd and Newport Rd (you can see the traffic lights there).

    As far as when Newport Rd will be totally realigned, I just haven't done any calling around to find out.

  3. They still need to move utility boxes and power poles before it opens.
