In alignment with Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen, the City of London has reopened a number of City facilities for in-person services and programs.
The City is reconstructing Wortley Road from Briscoe Street East to Devonshire Avenue to replace and improve the quality and reliability of water, sewer, and road infrastructure. Much of the current infrastructure is made from outdated materials such as vitrified clay and ductile iron and has reached the end of its lifecycle.
Construction started in May 2021 and is anticipated to last until late-fall 2021, with some minor clean-up work in summer/spring 2022.
