Mass site excavation was completed and work progressed on the building foundation systems. The south alley utilities were re-routed and abandoned as required. The south alley was closed to through traffic until the alley surface is replaced later in the project.



9th Avenue, in front of the site, will be reduced in width to allow installation of a tower crane at the front of the site. Two-lane traffic will be maintained on 9th Avenue. As part of an approved Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plan, new concrete barriers and fencing will be installed along 9th Avenue as an additional traffic safety measure.



9th Avenue to be closed to erect tower crane on Sept.13-14. Signage and MOT plan prepared by Transportation & Parking and Sgt. Bissett. Alternate routes provided along King Avenue to Cannon Drive.
