  4. Ironworker's Memorial Bridge ramps safety improvements - response from Jay Porter
    • From Jay Porter on 4 September: "A temporary bike fence was installed at the south west end of the bridge. Fabrication of the new fence is taking longer than expected but a new longer bike fence will be installed at that location in 2 weeks. The bike fence for Dollarton and Main sidewalks are also being fabrication and will be installed later this month. The improvements planned at the south east end of the bridge was on hold until the west sidewalk opened because the work will require closure of the east sidewalk for 1-2 days, the pole relocation should occur in 1-2 weeks with the levelling and repaving to follow soon after. Lastly the paint bars with “slow down” will be installed at 3 of 4 bridge exits next week weather permitting, the 4th is the south east side which will be installed once the improvement works are completed there"
