Downtown Londoners can expect to see increased construction activity as city crews work to complete Phase 1 of Dundas Place before winter arrives.
A letter sent out to Dundas residents and business owners on Friday warned of an increase in “noise, dust and vibration” in the area, as crews adopt a 24-hour, Monday to Saturday schedule.
Current plans have Phase 1 of construction slated to wrap up towards the end of November and beginning of December, allowing for the Dundas Place flex street to be open between Ridout and Richmond streets before the end of the year.
Despite having crews work overtime, the City of London says the intersection of Dundas Street and Talbot Street is still scheduled reopen on Wednesday, Oct. 17. However, the intersection of Dundas and Richmond Streets will remain closed for the remainder of the construction season.
The City adds that the duration of this year’s construction season depends on a number of variables including “weather, the availability of asphalt and the delivery and installation of streetscape elements.”
