The District of Muskoka says that progress on the King William Street project has been slower than originally anticipated due in part, to having  to work around complex utility structures as well as additional bedrock encountered in the deepest portion of the excavation.

Mark Misko, Director of Engineering and Transportation for the District of Muskoka says “Although we have experienced setbacks and delays to accommodate these utilities, the changes we’ve made to our traffic control plan and increasing the work zone platform will assist in making up some of the lost time,”

J.B. Enterprises, doing the work will continue to work late into November and potentially December, and says they will ensure the construction site is safe for winter maintenance.

The District says is acting on the feedback it received at a recent Community Information Session and will provide an update on the suggestions proposed in the future.
