First Avenue Construction

The First Avenue Widening project between Talbot Street and Steele Street will start the week of March 13 and be completed in June.

The project will replace large diameter watermain, sanitary sewer, and storm sewers.  The road will be widened to four lanes with a centre turn lane and sidewalk on both sides.

To safely complete the work the road will be closed with detour routes using Fairview Avenue and Caso Crossing.  The project includes one month of 24 hour weekday work to accelerate the schedule.

Access to all businesses in the area remains open.
