Riverside Drive has won the “Construction Street of the Year” award for 1986. The street had a two-mile extension built during 1986, which extended the street from 61st Street to Joe Creek. Until this time, Riverside Drive ended at 61st Street as a two-lane road that had a 90-degree bend onto 61st Street. However, a 1983 bond issue project provided funds to extend the street south two miles to 81st Street. The project began in late 1985 and was completed entirely in the fall of 1987.
