The first phase of the Water Street project is nearing its conclusion and pavement will be hitting the road as early as this week.
Councillor Dave Lane says excavation will be required at the intersections during every phase. Next year, the city will be working in three intersections.
Lane says the barriers which have been in place since early April will be removed in time for upcoming summer festivities but some work will continue.
Lane says by June 30 the barriers will be taken down but some finishing work will be ongoing. He says it will feel like everything is complete by June 30.
