Project Update - December 2019
Equipment transitions, including reassembly of the gantry crane on the east side of the bridge, has been completed. Vehicular traffic was relocated to the new west side of the bridge on Tuesday December 3, followed shortly by a temporary pedestrian route along the centre of the bridge.
The access points for the sidewalk remain the same as before. Large concrete barriers have been installed on the west of the sidewalk to separate pedestrians from traffic, and fencing along the east keeps the sidewalk separated from the new construction site. Due to the narrow width, cyclists must continue to dismount while using the sidewalk or ride along the bridge deck.
Additionally, due to the proximity to the construction site, pedestrians and cyclists who dismount will occasionally be signaled to stop at the discretion of flag persons in order for equipment to move into and out of the new job site on the east side of the bridge.
All users are urged to use caution and to watch for traffic at either end of the bridge deck when accessing the temporary sidewalk. Please refer to the map for further details.
