Expect delays on Lakeshore overpass

Delays over the noon hour were about 15 minutes

You can expect some delays if you take the Lakeshore Drive overpass home.

City crews are doing a "shave and pave" operation and traffic is reduced to one lane either way. Delays over the noon hour were about 15 minutes.

Some of the roads that get the most complaints in the city are about to get a fresh face this week.

Rehabilitation of various roads started on Monday and will be completed by the end of November.

Also included is the rehabilitation of the Kate Pace Way multi-use pathway on Memorial Drive from Stanley Street to Monk Street and on the Cranberry Trail approximately. 400 metres north of Cranberry Road.  

Traffic delays are expected although roads will remain open to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In the event a road is closed, detours will be put in place to direct travelers around the site. However, the pathway in the vicinity of construction will be closed and users detoured if public safety is a concern.

The contractor’s projected work schedule for the next couple of weeks includes:
