With a wet week behind us, the crew had to be creative to continue work. What might have looked like a festival tent, was actually a structure being used by the crew to do brick work in the freezing rain! If you look down Dundas from Talbot, disregarding the construction fence, you could image what Dundas Place is capable of with such a sizable tent on the flex street for events!
With the impending winter weather, crews will be working through almost any conditions to get everything finished. This week, while some worked under the tent, the remainder of the crew was finishing the underground work at the Richmond intersection (finally!). New traffic lights have also been installed.
Next week, our goal is to finish the concrete curb work and get ready for asphalt at the Richmond intersection. Richmond and Clarence are both designed to be asphalted (not brick) at the intersections. If the weather works with us, by this time next week, we'll be one step closer to finally being able to cross the intersection at Richmond without walking almost a block north/south to cross east and west.
Lighting of the Lights
On Friday, you might have ran into our Dundas Place Manager and/or one of the many volunteers we had out giving out Dundas Place cookies; spreading the word about London's first flexible street to the hundreds of people in attendance!
