Construction and streetscaping of Wyandotte West is still underway and area commuters can look forward to being able to drive from Sunset to Randolph — soon.
Crews are putting the last portions of the road together between Askin and Randolph. Over the holiday weekend, concrete was poured for the centre of the Randolph/Wyandotte intersection and asphalt paving is all that is left to make the stretch drivable.
When work wraps up shortly, lines will be painted and a replacement traffic light will be installed at Randolph.
The existing stretch of roadway was completed between Sunset and Askin in mid-September. Crews have yet to install decorative lamps, a new traffic light at California and finish other aesthetic touches.
While construction on the Sunset-Randolph stretch wraps up, work is continuing to install new sewers and watermains a bit further down the road. Crews are presently working near Bridge Avenue and will advance to Josephine, then Campbell before the construction season ends in December.
The entire project between Sunset and Campbell is scheduled for completion at the end of the 2012 construction season.
