At least they're still updating this every 1-2 weeks. Looks like the plaza is going to finally have pavers installed later this month.

Hope it's not the same crew that just finished up on the causeway. The area was blocked off with no work done for a month or more and now that they finally finished, lots of the pavers are uneven and not much better than before with plenty of tripping hazards. :whyme:

Two months since the City has posted its monthly bridge updates.

And the last two months have been a pretty integral phase of the whole project where the steel was to have been fully assembled then taken down in preparation for painting.

As spanky mentioned earlier, the first shipment of painted steel is to leave China on the 29th.

On a related note, the City has postponed the building of the two small bridges at Heron Cove and Raymur Point in James Bay. Very disappointed in that!


Don't be so sure.:cool:

More than one bridge on the go at any one time is probably not a good idea in this city.

Given that there were updates every month when less critical stages of the project were underway, it seems unusual that we would have nothing since March.

Given that one of those bridges was pointless waste of money I'm not too upset. The bridge behind the Coast Hotel is needed but the one from the Hotel to Fisherman's Wharf is a silly waste of time IMO.

^ I disagree tedward. The new bridge at Heron Cove will encourage people to continue their harbour walk to Fisherman's Wharf and beyond. Some folks hit the street and head in a different direction the way it is now. It will also be a lot safer without confused people wandering around the entrance on St. Lawrence. Plus, I'm hoping it will look cool.

Oh good lord. They won't walk around on the sidewalk to go see Fisherman's Wharf?

 

If seeing it from the walkway doesn't entice you to go all the way and check it out I don't think a bridge is really going to be a factor.

^ Why would you think there is a need for a bridge behind the coast hotel. That seems fine as is to me. Much better than the Fisherman's Wharf area.

Because walking up a driveway is unsafe, confusing, and unsightly and thus a bridge there would be an improvement.

Eastern Harbour Rd. sidewalk now open...

 

They've moved the fencing so pedestrians can now use the eastern sidewalk of Harbour Rd.  It's been open for a few weeks but I would be remiss in not mentioning it.  Still no sign of railings for the path.

 

Oh, and to the SUV about to hit that on coming car in the second pic - it's no turn on RED.
