A few changes to the Market Street sewer and water upgrades means the construction won't carry into the winter time.

The Market Street sewer and water upgrades are on track thanks to a change in plans.
The original plan was to upgrade the water, sewer and storm drains from Jubilee to Court street, however because the project was delayed that will be scrapped for this year. Instead Rowter says they will save it for a future phase.
Though it needs to be done, Rowter said it isn't as urgent as the Market Street work.
This month they will start rebuilding the sidewalks on Market Street, and will be widening them as much as they can. It will give walkers roughly eight inches extra, which brings them very close to the minimum street width.
The other major project the Region is involved with is the expansion of the Brooklyn Sewer. The Region is building a pumping station at the base of Herring Cove Brook, which will finish the current phase of the project.
The construction at the main entrance to Bowater Mersey was repair work to the steam line, carried out by the Department of Transportation.
The Market Street upgrade cost was set at $885,000, and so far is on budget.
