Due to weather, this closure has been rescheduled. Prince George Road between Whistlestop Road and Sharon Acres Road will close Monday, February 24 at 9 a.m. and will reopen Monday, March 10 at 4 p.m. This closure is necessary for pipe and culvert installation for the Shillington Storm Drainage Improvement Project. Motorists should use Whistlestop Road and Sharon Acres Road as a detour. Construction zones will be limited to local traffic only.
Access to driveways will be maintained.
CATS will not be affected.
Weather and unforeseen circumstances occasionally prevent work from being completed as scheduled, and make it unsafe to reopen lanes or streets when planned. When this occurs, City traffic engineers work directly with other City staff and contractors to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and reduce impacts to the traveling public.
Pedestrians walking near work zone areas should be alert, cautious and allow extra traveling time. It is advised they cross at signalized intersections, use pedestrian walk signals where available and abide by detour signage.
Motorists traveling through work zone areas should be alert and extra cautious. Drivers should get in the correct lane well in advance and constantly be on the lookout for vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes as they approach a work zone. Drivers should double their following distance.
