It’s Pile Time!

By April 17, 2019Project Updates

Spring has officially sprung and seasonal weight restrictions have been lifted (effective April 8, 2019). That means construction of the Huron River Drive D2 Segment of the Border-to-Border trail network is ramping back up.

Our contractor continues to make steady progress on Bridge #2, they have been working on building a gravel access road to the bridge to facilitate the next step in construction. We have also started installing the helical piles, which will support the boardwalk. Work on Bridge #1 should also begin in earnest this week. As the weather continues to improve, more and more people will be visiting the park. Please remember to keep your distance from all active work zones and give workers and equipment plenty of room to work. These can be hazardous areas that the general public should avoid.
