  • John Counter Boulevard – Princess to Indian – expect increased delays until the summer of 2021, while crews construct new four-lane road and rail overpass. Use of alternate routes is recommended. Motorists: Before you cross the rail tracks, please ensure there is sufficient space on the opposite side to allow you to cross and be fully clear of the tracks. This will prevent you from being stopped on the tracks.

One lane will remain open in both directions and flagpeople will control traffic. The bridge will remain open to cyclists and pedestrians during this period. In case of inclement weather, the work will be done on May 6. Questions? Email: Real Property Services, Public Services and Procurement Canada.
  • Taylor-Kidd Boulevard – eastbound Rockwell to Bexley – expect minor delays due to a lane closure on the south side until 5 p.m. on May 15 to accommodate installation of services for the West Village Subdivision.
