Update 5:30 p.m.:


Mayor Al McDonald says the cement barriers on Judge Ave. will be coming down once the project is complete around the first week of November despite some motorists asking they be kept.


"Yes, we have some that want them to remain and others that don't," McDonald told BayToday. "There are people in the neighborhood that want them removed. As well, the dead end creates challenges for snow removal and plowing."


Meanwhile, the guardrails on the overpass will be replaced as part of this project according to David Euler, the  Managing Director of Engineering.



That wasn't so bad!


The reconstruction of the Lakeshore overpass that started last year is almost finished.


All four lanes on the overpass have now been opened to traffic.


This is, however, only temporary as there are things that remain to be done which will require temporary and partial lane closures beginning next week.


You should expect delays during this time and are encouraged to use an alternate route.


The City also reminds you that the northbound sidewalk (on soccer field side) is closed until further notice and that pedestrians continue to only use the southbound sidewalk.
