Roadwork construction update: Sept. 15

  • Crews are continuing excavation work on the sanitary sewer in the intersection of George Street and Stuart Street. In spite of very deep and hard rock, at this point crews are anticipating being out of the intersection by the end of the day Monday. Once work is complete in the intersection, Stuart Street will re-open to through traffic. Taggart Construction will confirm scheduling as we get closer to the 15th.
  • Once work is completed in the George Street and Stuart Street intersection, crews will move to begin work on the storm sewer and water main on George Street, beginning in the intersection of George Street and King Street West. At this time it is scheduled that King Street West will be closed to through traffic between Lower University Avenue and Barrie Street starting the morning of Tuesday, September 16. Access will be maintained to the Burr Wing patient drop off and pick up zone, as well as the emergency room entrance and signage will be placed at the corner of Lower University and King Street West indicating as such. The intersection of George and King will be closed for at least one week.
  • Work for the storm sewer and water main will need to progress the entire length of George Street between King Street West and Stuart Street, therefore you will see heavy equipment and excavation proceeding up George Street again. Work was scheduled to be completed in two such phases in order maintain as much pedestrian access as possible to buildings in the construction zone.
  • A second crew is continuing to work on the sanitary sewer in the parkland at the foot of George Street and King Street West. Three parking spaces in the Barrie Street parking lot have been taken out of service to accommodate this work, and will remain out of service until excavation is completed.
