France unveiled a spectacular project for near half-billion-euro for a new pedestrian boulevard through the Grand Palais in Paris to link the Champs Elysees with the River Seine. Culture Minister Francoise Nyssen said the huge project will completely open up the enormous complex of galleries and exhibition spaces which also houses the city's Palace of Discoveries science museum.   In the end of the new “street” named “Rue des Palais” will be placed a garden overlooking the Seine.

The building will close completely for more than two years from the end of 2020 so that the work can be completed in time for the Paris Olympics in 2024, when it will host the fencing and Taekwondo events.  The first parts of the remodelled complex will open in the early months of 2023, the architects said.
