Richmond Street is currently down to one lane in each direction between Carling Street and Queens Avenue to complete emergency watermain repairs.
The impacted area will require new asphalt so lane restrictions remain in effect over the weekend, until Monday evening.
Beginning Monday, April 8, 2019 work will begin work on the King Street Cycle Lane Improvement Project, between Ridout Street and Colborne Street. Two lanes of vehicle through traffic will be maintained in the construction area. Expect lanes to be shifted to the north.
During construction, segments of the existing bike lane on King Street will be temporarily closed; cyclists should ride with caution and follow instructions on temporary signage. When the bike lane is closed, cyclists may use the detour route via Dufferin Avenue or choose to ride in shared traffic lanes. Motorists are reminded to stay alert and give cyclists their space to safely navigate downtown.
Please refrain from parking in the construction zone and keep an eye out for bagged (and therefore, unusable) parking meters. Alternative parking options can be found on london.ca/coreconstruction and/or accessed via Honk Mobile.
Night work will occur as part of this project. Road users should stay alert and expect construction activity during the day and in the evening.
London Transit (LTC) bus service will continue to operate on King Street. Some LTC stops on King Street may require temporary relocation during construction.
Beginning Monday, April 1 as early as 7 a.m., York Street, between Talbot Street and Richmond Street, will be closed to begin Stage 1 of this year’s downtown sewer separation project. The intersection of Talbot and York as well as the intersection of Richmond and York will remain open until late June.
Motorists and cyclists are reminded to follow advanced detour message boards or download the Waze app to find an alternate route. Pedestrian access will be maintained through the construction zone. Those travelling through the area are reminded to keep an eye out for advanced warning signs as temporary sidewalk closures may temporarily pop up.
Beginning Monday, March 25 as early as 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., lanes will be reduced on King Street between Richmond Street and Clarence Street for London Hydro work. The intersection of Clarence Street and King Street will remain passable but there may be delays due to Dundas Place construction equipment and other local traffic moving through.
All road users should expect delays in the area and are reminded to take extra caution when travelling on King and Clarence Streets. Because of this work, bike lanes will be temporarily interrupted. Cyclists will need to merge into traffic lanes on King Street. Motorists are reminded to stay alert and give cyclists the space they need to get through the area safely.
LTC buses will continue to operate.
Dundas Street, between Richmond Street and Wellington Street remains closed for Dundas Place construction.
