Preparing for a geotechnical investigation for the new Emma to Earl active transportation bridge

Access from Emma Street

Notice date: October 26, 2023

About the work

On or about November 1, workers will be in the ravine clearing vegetation to prepare for geotechnical work that is scheduled to begin sometime in November.

Clearing will be limited to low brush and vegetation so that an access route can be built to allow the geotechnical equipment to enter the site to take soil samples that will help inform the construction of the bridge. The geotechnical work is expected to last one day.
