Reconstruction Set to Begin on Huron Church Road
Improvements to Huron Church road are set to begin early Monday morning that will provide important infrastructure upgrades and a new smooth surface to a substantial section of the busy roadway between Malden Road and Dorchester Road.
As of midnight, Monday, April 1st, traffic will be reduced to one lane northbound and one lane southbound and there will be no access to Huron Church Road from Malden, Prince/Totten, or Dorchester. The north-south traffic lights at Malden, Prince/Totten, and Dorchester will be in amber flash mode as of 5am Monday and will continue that way until Thursday when the traffic signals will be completely removed from that stretch of roadway.
Beginning Friday, April 5th, and continuing for approximately 6 weeks, traffic will be one lane in each direction in the southbound lanes of the road. Side roads on the west will be opened for southbound access only. The northbound lanes and all roads on the east side of the road will be closed during this time.
Detour signage will be in place throughout construction.
Once this work is complete, further information will be relayed to the public regarding the next steps in the reconstruction project.
The 5.5-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. The work includes new concrete, replacement of existing water main and services, street lighting improvements and new traffic signal infrastructure.
