Alex Cullen forwarded this note to me from a project manager at the city. There's some highlights:

  • maybe there'll be a new bridge in 2011 (Cullen will follow up)
  • construction at Herzberg and Carling will be continue from May 3 - end of June, which should address some of those localized surface problems.  This is finishing last year's work.
