Stage two: June 7 to late July. From Second Street to just north of the Third Street intersection including Third Street east of Second Avenue.

Stage three: August 1 to mid-September. From north of the Third Street intersection to the end of Fourth Street.

There will be road closures in each stage with detours in place; no through traffic or vehicle access will be permitted within the construction area. Residents will be able to access their homes through the back alley and/or on their street as Second Street and Third Street intersections will not be closed at the same time. All road closures will allow for pedestrian access on sidewalks. Residents are asked to be aware of heavy construction equipment within the construction boundaries and on surrounding traffic routes.

Residents are invited to attend a Public Information Session, held at St. Patrick’s Church in the Parish Hall on Wednesday, May 2 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
