The continuation of the Balmoral Street reconstruction begins tomorrow, starting with the section between Alloy Drive and Central Avenue, which will be closed to traffic in both directions. Detour routes will be posted to route drivers around the area of construction.

During the 2022 construction season, work will take place on Balmoral Street between Alloy Drive and Beverley Street. Work is expected to be completed by the end of October.

Work includes the filling in of ditches and installation of storm sewers, construction of asphalt multi-use trails on both sides of the road to facilitate active transportation, pavement rehabilitation, and new curb and gutter.

The construction schedule is subject to change, as various factors – such as weather – can have an impact on project timelines. Drivers travelling in the area are asked to use extra caution and obey all posted signage.
