Stage 1 Update: May 16, 2019

Stage 1 of the Highway 13 Reconstruction project began Monday, May 13, and is scheduled to last about 5 weeks. Stage 1 includes Highway 13 from Highway 282 to just past Vergus Ave. During this time, Stage 1 will be closed, and traffic will be detoured via Marschall Rd and County Road 42.

Weekly work update

This week, the roadway surface was removed and storm sewer/culvert replacement began. Next week, storm sewer and culvert work will continue, and grading operations will continue.

Memorial Day weekend work

No work will occur over Memorial Day weekend (May 24-May 27). Stage 1 will still be closed to traffic over the holiday weekend.

Resident information

Access will still be maintained in the Stage 1 for residents travelling to or from their homes. Those exiting or entering their neighborhood using Vergus Ave north of Hwy 13 are asked to travel straight through the Vergus intersection and continue south—view the resident access map for more information. Garbage and mail pickup will continue as normal. The contractor will be working Monday-Saturday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
