Powering through the heat
It was another week in the heat for crews working on Dundas Place! We started off with a water service switch over between Talbot and Richmond. Businesses and residents along this stretch are now hooked up to the modern and reliable system.
We also started to install pole bases between Ridout to Talbot. These will hold the new street light poles which will be unique to Dundas Place and contribute to the simple and playful streetscape.
Hydro duct work was underway on the south side of Dundas, between Talbot to Richmond. This is why the pedestrian crossover has been shifted west, it is in front of Hotel Metro. The crossing is expected to return to its original spot, in front of Fanshawe College, on Monday. The image below shows crews adjusting the pedestrian crosswalks earlier this week.
