Another week, another section of Dundas Place reopened! On Tuesday, December 3, around 4 p.m., Dundas between Richmond and Clarence was reopened to the public.
New tree guards were installed west of Richmond Street, more street signs were put up and some odd jobs were underway such as concrete work near hydro vaults, street sweeping and sanding of the joints in between the bricks. Additional finishing touches will continue through the winter and into the spring of 2020.
Things will look a little sandy in the last two blocks for a little while longer. That's because we're waiting for the rain to naturally settle the sand in between the bricks to help solidify them into place.
Coming soon: field house
We also put up some signage this week to indicate where the new Dundas Place field house will be. Located at 177/179 Dundas Street, this space will be used to store flex street elements and can be used by City staff as needed.
The last brick to be laid
Get ready to say goodbye to the orange construction fencing for good! On Monday, December 9, Mayor Ed Holder, members of the Dundas Place community and the construction project team will lay the very last brick on Dundas Place. This will mark the completion of the foundation for London’s first flexible street and the reopening of all four blocks to traffic. This will also be a great opportunity to raise awareness that our beautiful street is back open and ready for business! Look for us outside of the Central Library at 2 p.m.
