The construction site has been very busy over the past two weeks. The final section of the suspended concrete slab was poured last week, completing the second floor concourse. Steel is now being erected on the front end of the building. Masonry block construction is well underway with concrete block walls constructed along the north and west sides of the building. Utility work continues this week in the space between the construction site and the old arena and curling club. This work is expected to be completed this week. Utility trenches are being backfilled and when complete, the walkway between Vaughan St/Barlow Ave and LeBourdais Park will be re-opened with a gravel walkway to provide pedestrian access to the curling club and the park.
Schedule and Budget:
The project continues to be on schedule for completion by September 2017 and on budget for $20.6 million.
The Seat Sale and Mural Sale continue. If you haven’t sponsored a seat or made a donation to the project, contact Alex by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
With both arenas operating and with the curling club set to open in the coming week, facility users are reminded that it may be more difficult to find parking close to facilities in the area. People are encouraged to allow time to find a parking space, carpool if possible, drop passengers off close to the facilities when appropriate prior to parking, and be prepared to walk some distance after finding a parking space. A map of public parking spaces in the vicinity of the arena and curling club is attached here for information.
