Archaeologists are going to be working overtime on a Kitchener construction site.
According to a report to regional council, work to uncover artifacts dating back hundreds of years as part of road reconstruction work on Fischer-Hallman Road is being extended into next year.
In October, officials said over 35,000 artifacts had been uncovered already, dating back to as early as the 1300s.
The region said the work has been very extensive, and as a result of the investigation continuing into 2022, work to widen Fischer-Hallman to four lanes between Bleams and Huron will have to wait.
The overall project is a multi-year effort, which includes roundabouts, new culverts, water mains and sewers.
Another report is expected early in the new year, outlining the 2022 plans for Fischer-Hallman Road.
