The eastbound and westbound lanes on Highway 174 between Blair Road and Montreal Road will close for Stage 2 LRT work starting at 8 pm on Friday, May 6. The closure will remain in place until 6:30 am Monday, May 9. Detour signage will be in place while the closure is in place.

The closure will facilitate the demolition of the Blair Transitway Bridge to make room to connect the Stage 2 LRT Blair Median Rail Bridge to Blair Station. The Transitway was closed earlier this year in preparation for the demolition.

The following traffic plan will be in effect during the closure:
