On the books since I was Regional Councillor a major road construction project for Bolton is now imminent. Re-construction of King Street from Humber Lea Blvd. to Deer Valley Drive is set to commence in May.
This long-awaited project will mean much-needed improvements to King Street and its sidewalks but will without a doubt impact traffic through the core this summer. This project will involve also road closures and night work. And, as always, the best way to deal with the impacts is to stay informed, plan and be prepared, and keep in mind that a much improved road network is the end result. See below for details on the scope of work, timing, etc.
The Region of Peel Project is Olek Garbos, project manager at 905-791-7800 extension 7827
