FIRST AVE REOPENS BETWEEN WELLINGTON AND TALBOT ST 5/16/2017 6:16:26 PM
First Ave between Talbot Street and Wellington Street has is now open ahead of schedule! First Ave has been closed between Talbot Street and Wellington Street since March for construction. New sewer and water pipes were replaced under the road.
David Jackson Manager of Capital Works says while you can't see the work that was done below the roadway you can see the work done above ground.
Jackson says that the project finished well ahead of schedule. The project was originally scheduled to be finished in June. He says that this is as a result of financial penalties that were included in the contract and also from the 24 hour work that was done at the start of the project.
