Both Larry Uteck and Southgate are now open to the public. The sidewalks on both are also being extended to their junctions. Larry Uteck is slowly being extended beyond the intersection to the future interchange site.

Ecole Secondaire is coming along slowly with most of the rear wall in place.

Some pictures by me today;












Its hard to tell in this image but the posts seemed to be in a circular fashion so I think this might be the first of three roundabouts for the area.

In the interest of saving space I am going to only post a select few photos from tonight to this thread. But if you want more photos just say so and I'll post them.

After carefully judging distance and looking at the plans I think I have finally figured out what the plan is for this area. Right now the main focus is for the junsction of Southgate and Larry Uteck to be built and completed along with the construction of Ecole Secondaire. Larry Uteck is being extended past the intersection right now to allow easy extension at a later date and to open up the corner commercial lot to be developed soon. Where the unpaved section of LU ends is just past the boundary of the commercial lot and is starting onto the parkland. The two dump trucks shown off in the distance are at the end of the ES lot and are probably beginning the clearing for the sportsfield next door.

Within the coming weeks I suspect the curbs will be completed in the area, sidewalks will be extended slightly up LU and stoplight installation for the corner of Southgate and LU will begin. Ecole Secondaire will continue construction and most of the exterior walls will be in place by the end of the summer.

Amazing how an architect's computer rendering can make an ugly precast tiltup box with vertical metal siding look good, when in reality it is what ugliness is being put up in these pics.

I didn't realize what those were until after I walked by them and saw the detinator box.

Normally at this time I would say "All photos taken by me today" and post a few photos from the exact same spot as previous weeks.

Unfortunately my computer decided to crash and destroy its hardware last night so the computer I am on right now is an older computer that does not like my photos and doesn't like photo upload sights either so I will post the photos later in the week once I have a brand new laptop to play around with. So in lieu of visual photos I will just provide this;

Ecole Secondaire is coming along nicely with most of the frame up and with the base in for the part that extends towards the road. Blasting is occuring on Larry Uteck in order to clear the future sites of condominium/apartment buildings. And the houses under construction on Southgate Drive between LU and Ravines Dr are well under way with work taking place on Saturdays now.

When I was back up in the area today I took a close look and well theres a reason the road looks so patchy.

In reality the road is actually very smooth but the reason it's still not perfect is because they have not put on the final layer of asphalt. Theres about an inch or so between the current asphalt level and the curb/manhole level which I imagine they will fill in later on after the heavy construction vehicles stop using the road so much.

Any geologists in the house? What kind of stone is that on the ground in these pics? I know it isn't granite. Is that bluestone?

Well if its off of the Bedford Highway across from Moirs Pond its 864 Bedford Highway (a five storey residental building with its own thread in the suburbs section).

If its up on the hill I have no clue right now but I'll be up there tomorrow probably to explore.

I went up the hill tonight and there is a new crane in place about halfway up Larry Uteck with a foundation in place. Looks like another typical Clayton 4-5 storey condominium building.

They've blasted out the northwest corner of Southgate and Larry Uteck for the neighbourhood commercial area.

They have quite a bit done for the school. It seems to be almost done.
