Leslie Sheppard Construction update

Councillor Carroll's office received this staff update on September 13/06.

The pre-cast concrete girders for the new bridge by NYGH will be delivered and erected on the nights of Sept 14 and 18. These will be erected at night and Leslie St between Esther Shiner and Sheppard will be reduced to 1 lane in each direction starting at 9PM. These girders are being delivered later than originally anticipated.

Stage 2 of the work at the Leslie/Sheppard intersection is approaching completion and Stage 3 be implement on or about the night of Oct 2. Stage 3 is a duplication of Stage 1 from a traffic setup perspective. The north/south pedestrian crossing on the east leg of the intersection will have to be closed for safety reasons.

Work on the entire project is behind schedule. All work except for the landscaping and the widening of Leslie St should be completed this year. A lot of the progress will depend on how soon winter arrives this year. We are only 6 weeks from November and that is when snow ploughing operations commence.
