Pedestrian access

The sidewalks in this area will remain accessible during the project. Pedestrians should follow the signs as they walk through the site. Pedestrians should also be mindful of sidewalk panels that have been blocked off due to freshly poured concrete and avoid walking those individual panels to allow the concrete to dry properly.

Property and business access

All businesses in the area remain open and accessible during construction.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to residential and business driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.). Construction activities may temporarily impact access to entrances. We will provide notice of any interruption in advance as much as possible. Home Hardware to be accessed from Duke Street.

Please plan for some delays and travel carefully in the construction zone. We request that when driving or walking through and around the construction zone you follow and obey the construction traffic signage for your safety and the safety of the workers.
