Project B includes the rehabilitation, widening and concrete median barrier at the Queen Street Overpass and McDougall Drain Bridge.
The Detail Design and Class EA are complete and the project received Environmental Clearance to proceed to construction in June 2020. Construction of Project B is scheduled to start November 2020 and continue until November 2022.
In November 2020, construction will be initiated at McDougall Drain; however, construction at Queen Street will not be initiated until April 2021. Due to vertical clearances, it is not possible to keep Queen Street open throughout construction. During the closure of Queen Street, traffic will be diverted to a local road detour along Lakeshore Road 303 (Clouthier Street), Edgefield Sideroad and Essex Road 42 (as illustrated above). It is anticipated the closure of Queen Street will begin in May 2021 and that Queen Street will remain closed for five months.
Construction updates for Project B will be available on the Construction Updates page.
