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 fre

Pedestrian navigation, our top priority.

Concrete placement continues in the 2019 Dundas Place construction zone, proceeding generally eastward from Richmond Street to Wellington Street. The paving work includes removals of the former sidewalks, laying the new concrete base, and then finishing with brick placement. Crews are doing their best to maintain a construction zone that's accessible, but pedestrian routes will continue to change as work progresses in front of each property. Please remember to look at the pedestrian maps and posted sidewalk signs to guide you. Pretty soon we'll have some extra-wide pedestrian walkways for everyone to enjoy, with lots of room for people to enjoy patios and park their bikes! Upcoming Work Thos

As we transition from the former pavement to the new pavement, we will have some obstacles impacting those walking and/or rolling through the construction zone. It's important that we maintain access to businesses so you will encounter lots of plywood ramps along the way. If you are unsure how to get to your destination, please do not hesitate to ask one of the construction workers on site. We will try our best to help you navigate the site and get you where you need to go. Crews have brought back access through Market Lane. Work is not 100% complete but all of the brick work is done and Market Lane

Street Party, Movie Night & Market Lane Back in Action!

Market Lane will reopen on Monday, September 9 at 7 a.m., bringing back pedestrian access between Dundas Place and the Covent Garden Market. Construction will continue in Market Lane, but orange fences will be rearranged to create a safe pathway. After this, crews will be focused on getting bricks laid on Dundas, east of Richmond Street, and adding streetscape elements in Market Lane. New this week, the crew began sidewalk removals, starting at Richmond Street, in preparation for concrete in the sidewalk area. If your walking or wheeling around Dundas Place, this will have an impact for your daily commute. Please keep an eye out for advance warning signage and give yourself extra time to get
