Traffic impacts due to utility work on Elgin Street beginning July 16


The full rehabilitation of Elgin Street is scheduled to begin in early 2019. In advance of the City’s work, Bell Canada is upgrading their underground infrastructure, which is deteriorated and in need of repair. This work is essential, and needs to take place before the City begins its underground infrastructure renewal in 2019.

The work will be staged so that lane reductions and on-street parking impacts are limited to the area where the work is taking place, and will not affect the entire length of Elgin Street. Access to businesses and storefronts will be maintained at all times, and residents and visitors are encouraged to continue to support the businesses during construction. Beginning on July 16, free parking is available at the City Hall parking garage located at 110 Laurier Avenue during weekday evenings (after 6 pm) and on weekends until completion of the major construction work on Elgin Street.

The second phase of Bell Canada’s work, between Cooper Street and Gloucester Street, is nearing completion. The third phase of Bell’s work will take place between MacLeod Street and Isabella Street, with a second work area at Gloucester Street for manhole repair. Upcoming impacts beginning July 16.
