Small touches, big impact.
If you're standing in or outside of Budweiser Gardens, you'll see the first block of Dundas Place starting to take shape.This week, the contractor has been installing trenchdrain "lids" along the road, which will replace the curbs, line the vehicle pathway and carry rainwater back to the Thames River.
With large amounts of rain behind us and in the forecast, crews are laying as many bricks as they can each day.
While bricks are laid, crews continued with the hydro work at the Richmond intersection. Since the Richmond intersection will only be closed for six weeks regardless of weather, crews are working extra hard when the weather allows.
When it rains, we have to take caution - for the safety of our crew and to protect the quality of our work. Both are extremely important. The picture on the right shows crew members working through the rain on Thursday. Luckily, we were able to complete the slab of concrete connecting Market Lane to Dundas Place, which has since been reopened to pedestrians.
Santa Clause Parade Pre-Game
The Santa Clause Parade won't be coming down Dundas past Wellington Street this year, but our neighbours at Filthy Rebena Vintage will be serving up discounts and free cups of their Filthy Blend all day! Grab an umbrella and take your family on a tour of DP before the parade!
If you own a business on Dundas Place and have a holiday promotion or something special going on before the parade, reach out to our partners at Downtown London and we'll work together to spread the word!
