Lessons learned and level ground

Although challenging, this week opened our eyes to new opportunities. At the beginning of the week, we closed the rest of the Dundas Place Phase 1 construction zone, between Richmond and London Music Hall. We put this off for the past few weeks to lessen the impact until necessary for the work. The sidewalk by the Bell building up to the court house is typically open to pedestrians but some of you may have noticed the sidewalk was closed this week. This is because some of our London Hydro installations had to be shifted due to some existing pipelines we found underground. Crews are working hard to have the sidewalk reopened by the middle of next week. Utility work (water and hyrdo) is heavy

The concrete curb between Talbot and Richmond is gone for good. That's right, this is the last time you will see a curb on this stretch of Dundas, our future flexible street! Curb removals will continue next week. Below is a short clip of John Shapton, Site Superintendent, live from the construction site on Fri
