    1. Thunderbird Boulevard will be reopening to traffic in both directions starting Monday, February 13th. 
    2. Work is still ongoing at the project site, so pedestrian detours and short duration disruptions on Thunderbird Blvd can still be expected. 

    The second phase of Brock Commons is underway on Walter Gage Road just east of East Mall. The main impact of this project is the full closure of Walter Gage Road between East Mall and Tallwood House. 

    Extended Construction Work Hours
    In an effort to ensure the project is completed on time, an application to work outside the restricted construction hours has been approved by Campus and Community Planning. The new construction hours will be from 6:00am to 8:00pm, Mondays to Fridays and 8:00am to 5:00pm on Saturdays. Any work taking place on Weekdays or Sundays prior to regulated work hours will not include machinery or loud tools. 

    The following steps will be taken to mitigate the noise impact: 

    • Any work that produces a substantial amount of noise such as cutting and hammering will not take place prior to 7:30am.
    • Every effort will be made to ensure the construction work will be completed before 7:00PM. 

    The new construction hours may be extended if needed. Check this webpage for any further updates.

    The construction hours are being extended to make up for time that was lost during a recent labour dispute with the concrete suppliers. The C+CP compliance office will continue to work with the UNA to ensure there is minimal disruption to the community.
