The City is holding a public engagement period from Oct. 28 to Nov. 11 for Londoners to learn about the project and view the current designs.

Due to COVID-19, Londoners can view the plans online or contact the project team by email at downtownloop@london.ca or by phone at 519-930-3518.

The project will add transit-only lanes and transportation improvements that the City says will ease congestion and improve safety and efficiency.
