Current construction projects

The projects and schedules are based on the program approved by Regional Council. The type, location or timing of these works may change or may not occur at all. These changes may occur before the start of the works or as the works are being carried out.

Typical practice with reconstructing roads is to pave to base course asphalt, with surface course asphalt placed on the road the following year.

Tips to reduce delays during construction
  • Avoid rush hour travel - Travel before or after the rush to and from work if you can, or take alternate routes and save non-essential travel for the less busy times. This will help reduce traffic trying to squeeze through reduced lanes in construction zones.
  • Carpool - Even if you need your car during the day, you can find a carpool buddy who does not. You will not only help reduce traffic, you can also save money on gas and parking costs too. Visit gotravelwise.ca and sign up to find a carpool buddy.
  • Take transit - Go to grt.ca and check out schedules for Grand River Transit routes.
