Well, next phase is officially on now. With the buses out of the Transitway, work on the LRT outside the tunnels will finally begin.  Work on the Hurdman station has begun some time ago already though, since it will be offset from the current one which can remain in service during construction.

They have been installing drilled shafts for the LRT's Hurdman Station for the last week. Not continuous flight auger piles though. I guess those will be supporting the elevated rails.

Lees Avenue Rapid Bridge Replacement Time-lapse

Transcript from the site: (http://www.confederationline.ca/en/)

--------------------------
Beginning the evening of Saturday, September 6 and continuing into the early morning of Sunday, September 7, the new Lees Avenue overpass was moved into place using Rapid Bridge Replacement construction techniques.

At 2,100 tonnes, the new bridge is the heaviest rapid replacement structure over a highway in North America. It is also the 6th of its kind to be installed in the Ottawa area.

We collected thousands of still photos from the installation and created a time lapse video to show you how it all came together.

Following 10 months of off site construction on the bridge itself, a team of approximately 100 people completed the final process of installation in less than 18 hours.The newly improved Lees Avenue Bridge will reopen for public use during the week of Septemb er 15, 2014. The full Lees Avenue roadway will be reopened in late fall.
