Accessibility - Residents who require accommodation (level entry, advanced notice, etc.) should contact the Consultant or City Project Manager to arrange for access during the construction period.
Pedestrians - New sidewalk will be added between Highbury Avenue and Commerce Road to improve pedestrian safety. Where applicable, signage will be erected on site at either end of the work indicating that the sidewalk is closed to alert pedestrians to find an alternate route.
Motorists - In order to complete the work in a safe manner, during construction all respective stages will be closed to through traffic. Detours and a traffic management plan will be in place. Businesses in the area will be kept apprised of activities that will have impact on property access, and the contractor and the City’s contract administration consultant will strive to maintain access to local businesses.
Cyclists - Cyclists should exercise caution around construction sites and follow all construction detour signs.
Transit Users - During Stage 3 of the project a short term closure will be required (anticipated duration is three weeks). During that time the bus stop closures/temporary bus stop relocations will be in effect. Visit the LTC website (londontransit.ca) to learn more.
