Bristol Street construction from Essex to Wellington rescheduled to 2018

Construction work on Bristol Street between Essex and Wellington streets is being rescheduled to 2018. The work currently underway from Yorkshire Street to Holliday Road will be completed this year.

Why is the schedule changing?

Map shows completed and planned construction areas on Bristol StreetCost estimates for the planned work are above what was expected and budgeted in 2017. The City is rescheduling this project to adjust the budget for 2018. Rather than reduce the scope of work, or come back over two years to complete it, staff will be asking Council for additional funds for this project in the 2018 capital budget. This will allow the City to ensure all traffic calming elements can be built as planned, and that residents are only disrupted once for this project.
