The height of the rebar gives an idea of the depth of the caisons.

Crews were installing jersey barriers down the middle of Cherry St today between the ship channel & Commissioners St, blocking the east side off to traffic.
The excavation is right up to the fence line so, presumably, the excavation of the east half of Cherry is about to begin; as the bike trail will presumably need to be on the road while this is happening it will not be so nice cycling to/from Cherry Beach and going to or coming from further east. Not sure there is much of an alternative.

You are correct - the signs show that bike & cars share the road now :(

Cherry St was already the least pleasant part of my bike ride - what with all the noise of work being carried out, the abundance of truck traffic and the occasional spray of water. I could see a lot of bikers using the sidewalk on the west side instead as there is very little foot traffic on Cherry St.

Interesting. Most of last year I was working on a Netflix show at Pinewood. A bunch of us would walk down to the end of Basin Street after lunch, just to stretch our legs. Lots of land there that's decidedly under-used. Putting more film and television production facilities in there is a great idea. That will really bolster the east end.... big new facilities on Unwin at Cherry, plus Pinewood and now this development, plus an expanded Showline at Lake Shore east of Carlaw.... impressive. Really hope it comes to fruition.
