Showing our Pride, even during construction!
We’re proud to be building a destination that welcomes everyone. On Thursday, the City of London worked with Downtown London, the London Public Library and a few good neighbours to spruce up the Dundas Place construction fencing for Pride weekend in London. We encourage you to come to Dundas Place and check out our new banners while you're out celebrating this weekend. Be sure to tag us in any of your Dundas Place posts so we can continue sharing the love!
With the majority of the underground work complete between Richmond Street and Clarence Street, the crew has started grading the road to get the gravel back up to the height of a regular roadway. This is the last step before we start trench drain installations.
With the hydro vault installed at the intersection of Clarence and Dundas, the crew has started connecting these concrete structures with the pipes. All of this work is required to properly protect the underground utilities we rely on daily.
Lane Restrictions Ahead
Over on the block between Clarence Street and Wellington Street, the crew has finished installing more hydro vaults. These concrete structures house the connection and maintenance points for the underground hydro infrastructure. Starting Tuesday and ending Friday of next week, the crew will be closing down one southbound lane on Wellington Street to continue hydro work.
What's Up With The Pylons On Richmond?
Crews will also continue sewer work at the intersection of Richmond Street and Dundas Street which will involve some lane restrictions for motor vehicles and cyclists. Please give yourselves, friends and/or customers a heads up! They might also notice some pylons to the south of this intersection because of a minor sink hole which the City will be taking care of early next week.
Working on the Weekend
There will be weekend work on Saturday once again. All work will stay between Richmond Street and Clarence Street, so please exercise caution when you travel through this section of Dundas Place on Saturday.
