Rochester Field construction notice and layout

7 06 2020

Councillor Jeff Leiper reports in his newsletter that work is beginning to transform Rochester Field into a staging area and worksite:

While residents have already seen it start, this week I received the formal construction notice from the LRT Stage 2 office. Folks will note that in July, the builders expect to construct a “slurry pit” where excavated materials will dry before being hauled offsite. I’ve asked to be briefed on what exactly that will entail. The rail office has also sent me a diagram of how the different on Rochester Field will be configured. Find both the notice and that diagram here.

Besides the slurry pit, I am also working with the City to try to get more timely notice of significant construction activities at the site. The erection of fencing, for instance, was premature, and the City, residents and I expect better communications going forward. I’ll be using my own newsletter, of course, to pass on what I know, but both I and the City encourage residents to sign up for the Stage 2 newsletter which has updates as well. Sign up here.
