Waterloo Region – GrandLinq has advised the Region of Waterloo that they require three, short-term road closures in UpTown Waterloo to complete finishing work related to their underground utility construction as well as to make minor repairs that were identified through the quality assurance program.
These short-term road closures are scheduled to begin on or about March 6 and will take approximately three weeks to complete. The closures will be done in three, back-to-back phases. Each phase requires a full road closure and will take approximately three to five days to complete. Crews will move onto the next phase as soon as the previous one is finished.
The first phase will begin on or about March 6 and take place on King, between Erb and William. The work requires a full closure of the area, including the King/Willis Way intersection. Both the King/Erb and King/William intersections will remain open during this time.
Once phase one is complete, crews will move onto the second phase: King, between William and Allen. This work, which could start as early as March 9, will require a full closure of the King/William intersection and will restrict southbound traffic onto King, from Willis Way, to local traffic only. The King/Allen intersection will remain open during this time.
The third and final phase, which could start as early as March 13, will take place on King, between William and John. It includes a full closure of the King/Allen intersection, and will restrict southbound traffic onto King, from William, to local traffic only. The King/William intersection will remain open during this time.
Construction will generally take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Detours will be in place and access to businesses, for both customers and deliveries, will be maintained along with pedestrian movements. The timing of all work is subject to weather conditions and construction constraints.
