Long-term closure on York Street begins Tuesday
York Street will be closed between Ridout Street and the Thames River in London for the next 10 weeks as Phase 1 of the York Street sewer separation project gets underway.
The project is intended to improve road infrastructure and water systems. The finishing touches are expected to take until next spring.
Phase 1 includes closing York Street from the bridge over the Thames River to the west side of Ridout Street until late June.
The intersection of Thames Street and York Street will be closed to traffic in all directions while Ridout Street remains open to northbound and southbound motorists.
Eastbound traffic is being redirected to Riverside Drive or Horton Street while westbound motorists will be using Queens Avenue or Horton Street.
