Notice of Single Lane Alternating Traffic on West 1st Street

Single lane alternating traffic on West 1st Street east of Philip Avenue will be in effect from May 10 to 13, 2021. This temporary traffic pattern change is required for the North Shore Wastewater Treatment Plant Project pipe connections across West 1st Street.

What to expect:

  • Single lane alternating traffic on West 1st Street, between Philip Avenue and Pemberton Avenue will be in effect from 9:00 a.m. May 10 until approximately 2:00 p.m. on May 13.
  • This traffic pattern is required to ensure safety of road users and workers as critical pipe connections are installed.
  • To reduce the amount of time single lane alternating traffic is required, crews will complete less noisy work such as welding, testing and maintenance for this component during nighttime hours.
  • During peak traffic periods of 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.; and 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., one lane of traffic in each direction will be reinstated.
  • Traffic control personnel will be coordinating the single lane alternating traffic through the West 1stStreet and Philip Avenue intersection.
  • Road users are asked to use caution while travelling the area, obey road signs and traffic control personnel.
  • Traffic delays are anticipated. We appreciate the community’s patience as we complete this essential work.
  • Access to businesses will be maintained and utilities will not be affected during this work.
