Wet ground and weekend work

With a rainy week behind us, crews will be working to catch up over the long weekend.

Rain Impacts

Rain can make construction sites muddy and unsafe to work in. Below is a list of construction work that rain puts a halt on:

  1. Concrete: Crews cannot pour concrete in the rain; it won’t cure right!

  2. Excavations: Crews cannot dig when the ground is saturated, it is unsafe for workers to be within a trench where the excavation could collapse.

  3. Sand: Bricks require a think layer of sand beneath them, but crews can not place the sand properly in the rain.

  4. Top soil: Dry top soil is needed to finish the tree infrastructure installation.

Rain Recovery

In order to make up for lost time due to rain, the contractor will be doing a lot more weekend work over the next month. If downtown this weekend, be on the look out for the pedestrian navigation signs as things could be moving around from Saturday to Monday.

Crosswalk Shift

One of the changes students will notice this week is the shifting of the pedestrian walkway across from Fanshawe College. You'll now see the paved crosswalk (shown below) right in front of Market Lane. This will be in place for approximately two weeks.

This week, new traffic light and signal button posts were installed at the Talbot intersection.
