While work is ongoing, traffic is expected to be reduced to single alternating lanes.
Construction will start with milling and concrete work, before moving onto surface work and the installation new lighting and pedestrian crossing improvements.
Following the Atkinson Street work, construction will move along Kinney Avenue to McKenzie Street with repaving, concrete work, bike lane barrier installations, lighting upgrades and stormwater infrastructure.
In September, work is expected to begin and be completed along Duncan Avenue between Fairview Road and Main Street. This work will see traffic signals installed at the intersection with Atkinson Street among other improvements.
