In October the project, covering five volumes of work, reached substantial completion. The project is now in the closeout phase with various minor items to be completed and the project appropriated documented.
During this week, the contractor will be completing incidental work items in all locations. Missing signage, remaining pavement markings, and general cleanup will be ongoing on Joy Street, Blackstone Block, and Constitution Road.
During this week, all work will be complete and the contractor demobilized in all locations. This is the last week of work for all Public Works projects before the winter moratorium for construction begins. Work during the moratorium is approved on a weekly basis, dependent on type of work and weather conditions.
No work other than warranty issues that may arise and need attention.
