Jane Street – A further improvement to Jane Street was undertaken in 1965 with the reconstruction and widening of the section from Foxwell Street to Lambton Avenue to four lanes.

This work included extension of the concrete

arch culvert over Black Creek.

Considerable difficulty was encountered in the

latter area due to poor soil conditions. The original arch was sitting on

35-foot jack pine piles, and a similar type was specified for the culvert

extensions. When the driving of piles commenced it was found essential

to penetrate to a depth of 50 feet to obtain satisfactory resistance, and it

was necessary to change the type to steel tube piling, so that additional

sections could be welded on as required
