Huron Church Reconstruction Set to Begin
Another section of Huron Church Road is set to receive important infrastructure upgrades, including new concrete, curbs, sidewalks, medians and street lighting, between Malden Road and Pool Avenue.
The 4.83 million dollar reconstruction project is possible thanks to 3 million dollars in funding from the provincial government under the Connecting Links Program. The City will contribute the remaining funds.
Drivers will see the complete closure of the north bound lanes of the roadway, shifting all traffic to the south bound lanes where two way traffic will be installed. Once that construction is complete, traffic will shift to the other side, again with one lane of traffic allowed in each direction. During construction, no left turns off Huron Church Road will be permitted through the construction zone.
Huron Church Road from Malden to Dorchester was completed last summer and went extremely well but Executive Director of Operations Dwayne Dawson expects this phase to move even more quickly. “This job is a little easier than the last one in the fact that there are no intersections involved," says Dawson."
Access to all businesses will remain open and information has been distributed to businesses and residents along the route, the Ontario Trucking Association as well as FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). Road signage will be in place two weeks prior to the start of construction.
