La Salle Causeway: Lane Reduction

The La Salle Causeway will be reduced to one lane for six hours on Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 16. During this period, motorists will experience a lane reduction in both directions. It is important to note that there will be short delays due to a lane reduction. There will be one lane open for both directions and two flagmen to control traffic flow at all times.

There will be no lane reductions during peak times in order to minimize disruptions. The bridge will remain open to cyclists and pedestrians during the lane reduction periods. This work is weather dependent and may be postponed until Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m.

Road Delays

Expect delays this week on:
* Jackson Mills Road from Bur Brook Road to 400m south (near the K&P Trail) as traffic is reduced to one lane to allow crews install concrete barriers to improve roadside safety.
* John Counter Boulevard from Portsmouth to Princess until mid-February while Hydro One crews relocate the overhead wires in preparation for the next phase of the John Counter improvements.
