The 1200 Block of Nicholson Road is now open.
Painting crews are now working on the streets, it is important to use caution, obey reduced speed limits and be aware of construction workers and equipment.
Remember King Street construction project detour route includes a new controlled intersection at Dufferin Avenue and George Street. North and South bound traffic is required to stop at this intersection for the duration of the project. As well, there is a new 4 way stop at the intersection of Henry Street and Dufferin Avenue as well as Henry Street and Banantyne Avenue.
A new controlled intersection today for all motorists to be aware of is Henry Street and Alexandra Avenue is now controlled by North and South bound traffic required to stop.
Please be aware the Henry Street detour route speed limit has been reduced to 30km/hr. from Dufferin Avenue to Spruce Drive. The detour route is experiencing heavier traffic flows, the public is requested to obey to slow down and obey the posted speed limit for everyone’s safety.
Removing barricades in construction zones is extremely dangerous and constitutes an offence under the Criminal Code as well as the Traffic Safety Act. EPS members will be monitoring the area as well as conducting the enforcement. Anyone caught driving through or moving the barricades, could face serious charges.
We ask you to obey all construction signage including reduced speeds, roads closures, and local traffic only, and men working as well as the detour signage.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
