Ministry of Transportation Working on Intersection at 3rd and McBride

December 12, 2016

UPDATE:  The Ministry of Transportation will be halting construction at 3rd and McBride until early January, when crews will return to work. In the interim, the roadway will be reopened, but with some area surrounding the work remaining blocked off, including the pedestrian walkway. Please continue to obey all traffic signage, and thank you for your patience.


The Provincial Ministry of Transportation is conducting repairs at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and McBride Street so that the light pole which houses the traffic light can be replaced. Northeastbound Traffic towards 3rd Avenue East has been rerouted. The Northbound lane on 3rd Avenue East is closed from Mcbride Street to the intersection of 1st Avenue East, and residents can expect some slight traffic delays. We appreciate the cooperation of all motorists and pedestrians in obeying signage and traffic controllers while the work is underway. The work is expected to take a week to complete.
