An update on the temporary road closure at Wychwood and Scarlett –
Should only be a few more days. The base coat of asphalt is down and the
temporary curbs are installed. The contractor didn’t want traffic on
the fresh pavement for a few days. There is only about a day and half of
onsite cleanup. Today is likely a washout because of the rain but they should
be done towards the end of the week.
Here is an update from the developer:
We have ordered a sign directing traffic from the site from Wychwood to Annadale out to Wonderland, it’s hard to control the trades and suppliers arriving at the site vs. departing.
Next week fencing will be installed along with sediment control and tree protection. We are waiting on locates before we start moving earth, likely late next week.
We are going to start with the interior condo road/sewers 1st (September 18 – October 31). We will connect the water on Wychwood and Storm and Sanitary on Finsbury. One lane of traffic will be open at all times. Each are ½ day to a day job.
The big disruption will happen when we install the services to the 4 lots on Wychwood and 4 lots on Finsbury. This will take place end of October to the 1st 2 weeks of November. Two weeks prior to starting we are required to post signage and apply for a road closure permit through the City. The City will distribute the information to emergency services, LTC and I assume the different boards of education.
When we get closer to starting on Wychwood and Finsbury I will keep you updated daily if required.
Construction of the new housing on the portion of the site outlined in red will be starting next week. The first part of the work is always the most significant with dump trucks and excavators on site. The developer is meeting with his contractor next week to sort out details including which streets trucks will be using (the shortest route is usually the least disruptive) and the timing of the various parts of the project. We have also asked for a contact number so that anyone with concerns can get in touch. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Levin by Tuesday and he will pass them along right away so the developer has them in time for his meeting with his contractor.
