Willow Road traffic control

Concrete work at the curb ramps is currently underway. This phase of the project will not require a full closure of Willow Road. There will be minor impacts to traffic with traffic control measures installed, such as cones and signage, to ensure the safety of the workers and general public accessing these areas.

The next phase is grinding and paving work, which is expected to be performed on Fridays and Saturdays only to minimize the impact on traffic along Willow Road. The intention is not to shut down Willow Road, but allow for work to proceed with at least one direction of traffic open to the public at all times, and utilizing a detour. The road will be opened up to traffic by the end of the work day each day.
