Construction Update 2017-08-04

04 Aug 2017

It has been a busy few weeks since the bridge deck was poured. The north and south abutment walls have been backfilled, allowing us access on top of the bridge to pour the east barrier wall. The west wall will be poured in the next week or so. 

On the north side of Highway 401, the grading work for the on and off ramps is nearing completion. Paving is scheduled to begin the next week or early the following week.

On the south side, street light poles have started being installed and a long section of curb along the extension has been poured. 

Two westbound and two eastbound overhead signs leading up to Veteran's Memoral are scheduled to be installed in the next couple of weeks. While the signs are put together on the ground, two lanes in each direction will be closed. One 15 minute full closure of Highway 401 will be needed to finish the installation for each of the four signs, with these closures coming during the night. 

While the bridge and south extension will remain closed, the westbound on and off ramps will be opened by the end of August.
