Last week, crews completed most of the brick work on Dundas between Richmond Street and Clarence Street and this week, new street lights have been energized in this same block! The new LED street lights are much brighter than before and will be complimented with more decorative lighting. Increased illumination is a design element that is known to provide a higher sense of security.
With all of the watermain work complete at the intersection of Dundas and Clarence, the crew can install the rest of the duct work needed for the traffic lights and other utilities. This is the last of the underground items that need to be installed at this intersection.
Over on the last block, between Clarence Street and Wellington Street, the crew continues placing concrete for the sidewalk and curb.
We did hit a bit of a snag when paving the vehicle path east of Clarence Street. If you were wondering why the concrete was being removed in that segment, it’s because it wasn't thick enough. We caught it in time to correct the situation, and crews will be working over the weekend to finish removals so they can re-pour of concrete next week. In the meantime, crews were redeployed to advance construction at the Clarence and Wellington intersections in order to maintain project timelines to meet our end-of-fall target.
