Trench work and closures will be in 200’ section lengths at a time.

“This lane closure will commence Monday, November 2nd, 2020 to Wednesday March 31st, 2021. Working hours will be from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, weekly Monday through Sunday.

“The public is asked to avoid these lane closure sections and to use alternative routes via Ducks Puddle Drive & North Shore Road for the duration of this trench work.

“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full cooperation of the public and apologizes for any inconvenience that may result.
