News Be mindful of workers as construction ramps up SHARE ON: Stu Campaigne, staff Wednesday, Jun. 13th, 2018 It’s construction season from now until November. This is a reminder to be vigilant when travelling through a construction zone. Be mindful of workers on the ground and in machines on job sites. Always obey posted signs and flags or signals from workers. Fines are increased in marked construction zones. The City of North Bay says traffic will be impacted as the 2018 Asphalt Resurfacing Program is underway. Roads will remain open to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In the event a road is closed, detours will be put in place to direct the public around the site. Work is intensifying as we head into the busy construction season, with a head start already on McKeown Avenue west of McNamara Street. The approach from the south side of the Lakeshore overpass is being rehabilitated and there are plenty more projects on the horizon. Be careful of crews working to improve the city in the coming months. The projected work schedule for the next couple of weeks includes: Road Reconstruction Cartier Street – McKeown to McGibbon Pulverize and Pave Carmichael Drive – Airport to Littledown Lane Mulligan Avenue – Lakeshore to Beaver Albert Street – Frost to Vanier Marshall Avenue – Marshall Park to bridge Mill and Pave Lakeshore Drive – Various sections from Overpass to Marshall Park Main Street East – Pedestrian Walkway to Overpass Ferguson Street – McIntyre to Worthington Victoria Street West – Ferguson to Fraser Marshall Avenue – Lakeshore Drive to Marshall Park The rehabilitation of the Kate Pace Way multi-use pathway on Memorial Drive (from Stanley Street to Monk Street) as well as on the Cranberry Trail (approximately 400 metres north of Cranberry Road will also begin. Work on the pathway will mean trails will be closed or detours set up if public safety is a concern.
