North Bay, ON – April 22, 2021 – The City of North Bay will soon begin installation of a new watermain on Lakeshore Drive between Clifford Street and Marshall Avenue as part of ongoing waterworks upgrading in the area.
The work will get underway April 29, 2021 with the closure of a portion of Lakeshore Drive, between Marshall Avenue and Mulligan Street, from 9 p.m., until 7 a.m. the following morning. Work will resume the week of May 3 and is expected to take seven to 10 weeks to complete, with traffic within the construction zone on Lakeshore Drive reduced to one lane in each direction for the duration of the project. This will result in some traffic delays and travellers are advised to add extra time to their schedule or temporarily take an alternate route.
Access to McMurray and Howard avenues during the initial road closure will be available from the Mulligan Street side of Lakeshore Drive, while access to Clifford Street will be provided from Marshall Avenue side of the closure via Wigston Drive.
The construction crew will make every effort to limit disruptions and to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.
