Temporary Traffic Accommodation Strategy

The work being undertaken on Railway St. will necessarily require road closures and alternative routes. A Traffic Accommodation Strategy has been developed and includes the following highlights:

  • Road closures will be split up into multiple phases along Railway St, starting from Laut Ave. and moving north to Limit Ave. This will include closures of the side avenues from Railway St to the alley way as well.
  • Each phase will allow for pedestrian access to all businesses and residences.
  • All businesses will be provided vehicular access for deliveries.
  • Parking will be restricted throughout the duration of the project.
  • During the first two phases of construction, access to Railway St will only be available via Limit Ave until construction is completed between Laut Ave and Ross St.
