Dunedin City Council property service group manager David Bainbridge-Zafar said the $400,000 reinstallation in the Wall Street Mall was now 80% completed, and would be finished by mid-July.
Work still to be completed included tile-laying, adding a glass floor over the timbers and information displays.
Timbers had been laid on fake mud in an enclosed climate controlled space in the floor to replicate the original causeway.
The council had been working closely with Heritage New Zealand on the display, which was listed as a category 1 heritage item.
Mr Bainbridge-Zafar said contractors had been working with retailers to minimise disruption to businesses and shoppers, so most of the work had taken place after hours.
