The delays were resulting from both demolition schedule and minor design changes upon completion of demolition. Attempts were made to accelerate the schedule but were unable to achieve opening prior to the end of the year. 

The municipality is exploring all its options to ensure completion provisions of the contract are enforced.

Winter weather conditions will force the shut-down of construction operations in January which will restart again once weather conditions allow.

The Engineering and Transportation Division appreciates the patience and consideration of Chatham-Kent residents during the completion of this necessary rehabilitation project.
