Smith Group beats deadline for getting canal contained and covered

The Porter Canal has been covered in preparation for development of Smith Group's Honda and Chevrolet dealerships on Sunnyside Road near I-15 Exit 116.
A month ago we spoke to Smith Group owner Stafford Smith about his plans to relocate their Honda and Chevrolet dealerships from North Holmes Avenue to Sunnyside Road. Everything was going to depend on whether they could get the Porter Canal into a culvert and covered so they could grade the ground and pave it, he said.

Dropping by today, the canal bed is still dry while the concrete walls have been set up and the top is being sealed off. So it looks like Smith should be able to proceed with the work.
