· Minor clearing is currently ongoing to allow for geotechnical boring at structure locations.
· Excavation by archeologists is currently ongoing to ensure the future construction does not impact historically protected areas.
· Hydraulic modeling is currently ongoing to ensure water crossings do not adversely impact the adjacent properties.
Design is expected to be complete in winter 2015. A construction schedule will be developed once design work is complete.
