Watermain and sanitary sewer replacement, road repairs and resurfacing

Main Street North and Nelson Street West / Theatre Lane Intersection . Project 18-1380.

The Region of Peel has been working in your neighborhood to replace the aging watermain and sanitary sewer along Queen Street and Main Street. This work is required to maintain and improve existing water and wastewater services.

At this stage of the project, lane reductions will be required to complete this work.

Traffic impacts

The intersection of Main Street North and Nelson Street West / Theatre Lane will be closed to all traffic. This temporary road closure is expected to occur from 7 a.m. on Monday, November 13, 2023, until as late as 7 p.m. on Friday, November 24, 2023. To minimize the duration of the road closure, this work will be continuous, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will do everything possible to keep overnight noise to a minimum. Efforts will be made to reduce impacts to local residents by restricting the louder construction activities to the daytime.

A detour route will be clearly marked with road signs. Please see the included map for the detour route. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained. The intersection will be closed to all traffic and there will be no on-street parking within the construction zone. Emergency vehicles will have access to the area at all times.
Please expect delays and choose alternate routes.

While work is actively taking place, police officers may be posted around the closure area to monitor traffic flow.
