  • Trails and open space disruptions (trail construction, playground notices, etc.)

Unscheduled Water Shutoff – St. Andrews Avenue (and area)

Timeline: Saturday, November 19th until 6pm

Water service in the area of St. Andrews Avenue has now been restored. Residents may notice discoloured water or air in the line water system. If this is observed, it can be alleviated by opening a cold-water tap and letting the water run in a fixture that does not have an aerator, such as a laundry tub or bathtub. If the problem persists, please contact the Department of Public Works at 748-1016.

It is recommended that you refrain from doing laundry on this day to lessen the possibility of clothes being soiled or stained by discolored water.

Traffic Disruption – Park Avenue

Timeline: Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 to Friday, November 18th, 2022

To facilitate pedestrian rail installation near Dunn’s Bridge, there will be traffic disruptions and potential short-term delays on Park Avenue during the above-noted time.


Old Placentia Road – Pedestrian Underpass Repair

Timeline: Wednesday, October 19th, 2022 to mid-December
Repairs will be made to the pedestrian underpass at Old Placentia Road during this project.  Traffic disruption will include periodic lane closures, though Old Placentia Road will not see any surface work, as the underpass is beneath the surface.  The purpose of the lane closure is to prevent traffic loading onto the underpass structural repair until the reinforcement is in place.  Please check for updates as the work continues.

Localized Repairs and Upgrades

Timeline: November 2022

Localized repairs and upgrades to asphalt surfaces, sidewalks, and curb and gutter will commence the week of October 24, 2022 on Corey King Drive, Norma’s Avenue, Kyle Avenue, Topaz Place, Smallwood Drive (near Reid Centre and near Jersey Avenue), Ruth Avenue (near First Street), and Centennial Street. Expect lane reductions between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm during construction.
