City crews are expected to resume excavation of the LRT tunnel this week after water is removed from the section underneath the Rideau Street sinkhole.

City manager Steve Kanellakos wrote in a statement released Monday that crews have shown “significant” progress since the sinkhole opened up on June 8. He said the Rideau Transit Group estimates that the intersection of Rideau and Sussex, just west of the sinkhole location, will re-open in one week.
