Crews replacing damaged Victoria Street culvert
A section of Victoria Street is expected to be reopened by the end of the week as workers make progress on repairing a culvert, according to city hall.
They are replacing a five-metre section of storm drain between McCullagh and Milburn Avenues.
Once that’s done, they will backfill and repave the site.
The stretch has been closed since late last week as the city worked to determine the best way to fix the damaged culvert, now believed to have been installed in the late 1960s.
“The operation was slowed for a few days as rain and ground water filled the excavation site and had to be removed,” city hall said.
