Resuming work on Wellington Street site

Guelph, ON, July 13, 2015–On Friday, construction crews resumed work after the City disposed of one drum, metal debris that appeared to be a second drum, and surrounding soil from a construction site near the intersection of Wellington Street and the Hanlon Expressway.

Odours subsided once the materials were removed, and the two workers who experienced nausea on Thursday returned to work on Friday.

Crews stabilized the walls of the excavation area and began improvements along the banks of Howitt Creek that will allow the waterway to return to its normal flow.

Project updates will be posted at .
