A year in review & holidays wishes from the crew

Dundas Street was closed on April 10 of 2018 and reopened as Dundas Place on December 9 of 2019. This is the first reconstruction project London has taken on that has transformed a landscape this drastically in the downtown core. There were a lot of "firsts" for this project, such as the use of pedestrian navigation maps and advertising the area on billboards, buses and the radio to name a few. Dundas Place also became the first construction project to get its own blog and have its own social media presence which created new ways for us to share updates with the community. There were multiple occasions where crews worked through the night and over the weekend to meet project milestones. We c

Back open & ready to celebrate

On Monday, the last of 700,000 bricks was laid on Dundas Place by Mayor Ed Holder along with Ward 13 Councillor Arielle Kayabaga, the construction crew and members of the Dundas Place community! We also heard from a few local business owners including Angie from Grace (shown below) who opened her restaurant during construction.

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.

The final push, pebble seating and a successful holiday detour

The intersection of Dundas and Clarence is now open to traffic! On Friday around 5 p.m., pedestrians, cyclists and motorists were able to resume normal activity through the intersection just in time for the Lighting of the Lights, CP Holiday Train and Downtown London’s Holiday Detour. There may be a few single lane closures in this area in the coming weeks, but the intersection will remain open for the public moving forward. As we approach the end of the 2019 construction season, stay tuned for updates from the City of London as core area corridors continue to open up. Despite the rain that came down all day Wednesday, the crew accomplished quite a bit. Between Richmond Street and Clarence S
