Evidence at last of progress on the missing link in the south ramp for the Chisholm Trail river bridge.

If you're cycling on the shared-use footway, there's a temporary ramp and diversion. If you're using the on-road cycle lane, you're a bit stuffed.

The cap that ties Chisholm Trail underpass wing sections together seems to be going to be quite a complex shape - presumably to align with the stone facing below it.

It looks like the culvert will work well to interface with the existing path beside the river, and with the turn towards the bridge ramp

South ramp for Chisholm Trail river bridge has damage matching that on the north ramp

ncn51 culvert is usefully wide, but railings are upright and don't match those on the jetty

Railings are being fitted on the culvert where ncn51 will cross the brook

Contractors (and their machines?) will have a handy short diversion route around the Newmarket Road closure for the Chisholm Trail underpass - steeply down into the south compound and back up again. This is the east end.
