Waverley Underpass Update - On time and under budget

April 25, 2019

We are now entering the final year of the construction on the Waverley Underpass project, which is expected to be complete this fall!

On time and under budget, the project is currently estimated to come in $58.1 million lower than originally expected.

Over the winter, excavation of the underpass was completed, and work on land drainage components has advanced.

As the weather gets warmer, crews are beginning to work on a number of components in the coming weeks and will continue throughout the summer, including: 

  •          Underpass excavation and land drainage
  •          Wilkes intersection paving
  •          Underpass roadworks and pathways
  •          Reconstruction of westbound lanes on Taylor
  •          Taylor intersection works

Traffic will continue to flow through the site during construction until August, when it will be transitioned under the underpass during a weekend closure.

Construction will continue into October 2019 to complete all roadwork. Additional updates will be issued as these milestones approach. Please see Construction Update #8 for additional details.
