Downtown Construction


Building a Downtown that is Future-Ready

We ask for your patience as we rebuild the core of our community, increase capacity for development, find new ways to care for our environment and upgrade infrastructure that’s up to 150 years old.

Seven Habits for a Successful Commute:

While we do our best to coordinate schedules and take action to improve traffic flow during construction, there are a few important tips you should keep in mind when planning your trip downtown.

1. Leave a Little Earlier

When travelling through our downtown core, you may experience trip delays at various times in various locations. Whether you are a motorist, transit user, cyclist, or pedestrian, always give yourself some extra time to get where you’re going.

2. Try an Alternate Route

Download the Waze app to find alternate routes downtown. Avoid construction by letting this hands free app guide the way!

3. Find Parking 

There’s still plenty of downtown parking despite the construction. Sign up and scope out a few spots using the Honk or Hangtag app before you go.

4. Call Ahead

Construction should never stop you from getting where you want to go downtown! Call your destination ahead of time to find out the best way to get there. For contact information, view the Downtown directory.

5. Obey the Signs

Remember to look for the orange signs; they change often and are posted to help you navigate construction as you arrive downtown.

6. Check Renew London

We encourage everyone to search their street name on the Renew London website regularly and use this tool to plan your routes. Every construction project in the city is listed on this interactive map.

7. Stay Connected

Get the latest information by listening to local radio, following the City of London on Facebook and Twitter and viewing Public Service Announcements.
