Re: Bay Street Bridge Replacement
The following is to update you on the progress on the reconstruction of the Bay Street bridge and the revised completion schedule. Dufferin Construction Company (DCC) has been working expeditiously on this project to meet the original completion of December 2013. Unfortunately, the time and effort required to complete the foundation work has taken longer than anticipated, delaying the project. Given the upcoming winter months, the placement of the new bridge deck will be deferred until spring 2014, with final completion of the pavement expected June2014.
However, this delay in opening the bridge will not impact the Metrolinx (GO) schedules to commence work on the planned station in Hamilton. At this time, CN/GO/DCC are working together identify opportunities to keep both projects moving forward.
Bay Street remains closed from Strachan Street to Stuart Street until the work is completed
