Starting Monday, March 4, sections of Woodroffe Avenue, from approximately 150 metres north of David Drive to approximately 50 metres south of Norice Street, will be reduced to one lane southbound.

The southbound lane closure is related to ongoing watermain repair work as part of the Woodroffe Avenue Watermain Repair Project. The watermain repair work will involve excavation in the southbound lanes of Woodroffe Avenue, replacement of sections of watermain, and reinstatement of the road.

This work and the remaining project work is expected to be completed in spring 2024.

Traffic delays around the construction zone are expected. Signage will be in place to notify residents of the impacted area and applicable detours. Residents are encouraged to consider alternate routes where possible.

OC Transpo routes will be maintained through the construction zone.  

Local access, pedestrians, and cyclists

Access for pedestrians and cyclists through the construction zone will be maintained but may be detoured at times. Access to local businesses and private properties will be maintained at all times.
