Bricks are going down & Richmond Street is back open!
Brick work has begun! This week, the crew started laying pavers at Richmond Street and will be working their way east. While this is happening, another crew will continue concrete work closer to Clarence Street.
Each day, the crew aims to lay more than 10,000 bricks, to cover approximately 2,200 square feet, on the roadway portion of Dundas Place. Check the Dundas Place Facebook page for a quick update from Jonny Ngai (right) and Mark Snowsell (left), who manages the brick laying process.
While the concrete base goes down on the pedestrian portion of Dundas Place, we're going to continue to see a lot of creative detours. The crew is committed to helping everyone get around so please feel free to ask them for assistance, anytime!
East of Clarence Street, the crew has started installing trench drain. Soon, we will be ready for more concrete in this block which means there will be a lot less dust in the construction zone.
Clearing up a Core-Area Corridor
On Wednesday, Richmond Street was opened up between Horton Street and King Street as crews wrap up another stage of work on our 2019 downtown sewer separation project. York Street has also been opened west of Richmond Street.
