Arterial roads

Operations will begin on arterial routes before moving to highway sections, according to a Mainroad press release.

Areas for repaving or resurfacing were identified by Mainroad staff in consultation with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Mainroad says single-lane alternating traffic will be kept open at all sites, but advises drivers to plan alternate routes if necessary. The company asks drivers to obey flaggers who will be directing traffic.

Operations will be ongoing from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. but there won’t be any excessive noise or bright lights remaining on scene overnight, according to the company.
