Motorists are being advised to avoid Third Avenue and Victoria Street this morning as work construction work continues in the area.
A new water main has been installed and pressure-testing is underway now. Water service should be restored very soon. Backfilling of the excavation is also underway in preparation for re-paving later this morning.
When paving is underway, the intersection will partially re-open to single-lane, alternating traffic. Nevertheless, the city is hoping to keep traffic volumes as low as possible around the site and is encouraging motorists to avoid the intersection if possible. Dominion Street remains the detour.
