Taggart will be installing the curbs in the final block next Wednesday. Shortly thereafter, they will be able to begin fine grading the roadway to prepare for the asphalt. This should begin late next week and will take approximately two days.

Once this is complete, the final coat of asphalt can be placed. This will likely be shortly after Nov. 9
Elizabeth Street and Bowery Streets will be open only on the weekends. A pedestrian walkway will be put in.

The tree subcontractor was excavating this week to prepare each location for the trees to be planted. Trees may start going in on Monday. All of the hardware is finally in.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be planned for sometime in Mid November.

UPDATE: Oct. 21 It is expected that Picton Main Street will remain closed to vehicle traffic between Ross Street and Chapel Street for the remainder of construction, which is anticipated to last another three to four weeks.

Work at the intersection of Elizabeth Street and Main Street has delayed the block’s opening to vehicle traffic. This work is not expected to be completed until closer to the project’s completion date. After this work is complete, the municipality will re-assess whether the block can be re-opened in advance of the overall project completion.

There will be a brief disruption to water and wastewater services between Elizabeth and Chapel Street next week as crews connect the new watermain. Affected property-owners will be notified in advance of this disruption.

There is free parking available at municipal lots on Mary Street, Market Lane, and King Street. We ask residents to respect private parking areas in the vicinity by using these public lots rather than parking in privately owned spots.
