Traffic Advisory: Closure on Riverside Drive
Posted on 05/16/2019
The public is advised that there will be a double lane closure on Thursday, May 16 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Riverside Drive, between Garfield Street and Exhibition Drive, in the eastbound lanes (headed towards the Hillsborough Bridge). Sidewalks within the construction area will also be closed. Traffic control personnel will be onsite and detours will be in place. This closure is necessary for work on the East Royalty Sewer Trunkline Upgrade project.

The East Royalty Sewer Trunkline project is a component of the overall project to decommission the East Royalty Lagoon. This portion of the project includes the replacement of a sewer main that transports sewage from the Westcomb Crescent to the roundabout at the intersection of Exhibition Drive and Riverside Drive. The work involves approximately 2,800 metres of sewer main and about 40 manholes.
