Lining drains and the #ArtOfAugust
Market Lane construction is fully underway! The excavations in this area that required the closure of Dundas Place, between Ridout Street and Richmond Street, were complete as of Friday, August 9 and the road is now back open.
Plus, the process of installing lining for the new trench drains has started this week, as shown in the images below:
Crews were onsite once again over the weekend in order to maintain the momentum of our construction schedule. Work included some more road grading, among other construction activities.
The Art of August
Construction zones can get messy but that doesn’t mean our street lacks beauty! This month, we want to see photos of all things "art" that you come across on Dundas Place! This month, we want to see photos of all things "art" that you come across on Dundas Place! This could be a flower, sidewalk chalk, a sunset, a vinyl record, a book or your very own creation! Local artist, Radek, who was caught working on his own piece of art inspired by Dundas Place on Wednesday morning!
Dundas Place was designed to allow spontaneous things like this to happen, with the extra-wide pedestrian zone (sidewalks) that create more space for people to explore and spread out, even on a regular day when Dundas Place is operating as a street! Whether you're creating art, or coming across it in different forms, tag @Dundas_Place in your photos with the hashtag: #ArtOfAugust for a chance to be featured. The photo below comes from one of our beautiful planters!
