Extension of the concrete median at the "T" shaped intersection

Since the introduction of the new "T" shaped intersection, the City has identified a number of vehicular conflicts near the concrete median located westbound of the "T" shaped intersection.  In order to correct the situation, we will extend, among other things, the median by 100 meters to avoid engagement in the wrong lane.

The work will start Monday, August 7th and will last until Friday, August 18th. Please follow the signs for the detour routes.
