According to the city, construction should take about two months to complete, if the weather cooperates. Along with new underground infrastructure, the stretch of road will also get a fresh coat of asphalt when it’s all done.

Drivers, along with pedestrians and cyclists, will not be allowed through during construction, the city said.

There will be signs detouring drivers travelling on Gordon Street to Stone Road and then to Victoria Road.
