Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Looks to me like they had one lane of pavement installed on Tuesday.

Council is set to vote on a motion tomorrow to re-open the new road under the tracks as of Thursday at 12:01am.

Yep! Just walked passed there today and looks like it could open in the coming days.

I like the slight Art Deco feel of the bridge supports.

Note that this doesn't mean the road reopens tomorrow. It's to formally recognize this section as a regional road and to permanently close the temporary road.

What I have heard (from Ken Seiling, who attended my neighbourhood association's annual general meeting) is that the underpass will be closed a little longer because instead of trying to open two lanes, and then having to periodically close and rearrange the underpass, they're going for opening all four at once.

So if they permanently close the temporary road, wouldn't the underpass need to be open?

There has been no temporary road for months now. I guess this is just putting the official seal on the change.

According to this article the Weber Street underpass is opening this afternoon. Is this really true?

I heard on the radio this morning that the underpass is partially open, good for Oktoberfest weekend

I can confirm that it is! They have it limited to one lane in each direction but I believe it's closed at Wellington and north of there too.

I drove up Weber to Union on Thursday. Two lanes are open. It's supposed to be fully open in mid-November.
