Notice of Construction - Whites Road and Kingston Road

Posted on Monday December 05, 2016

Purpose:  The Regional Municipality of Durham, Works Department will start the reconstruction of Kingston Road, from just west of Steeple Hill to just east of Delta Boulevard and the reconstruction of Whites Road, from 200 meters south of Kingston Road to just south of Dunfair Street. Proposed work consists of storm sewer replacement, local watermain replacement, road widening and paving, sidewalk reconstruction, and traffic signal replacements. The proposed work will provide bus-only lanes and designated bicycle lanes.

Duration:  The Region’s contractor, Varcon Construction Corporation, will start work December 5th, 2016 and anticipates completing the work by November 2017. Winter work will be limited to temporary traffic signals, utility relocations and construction of retaining walls. Unfavourable weather conditions may affect the work schedule. Most construction will occur in the daytime, Monday to Friday, with the exception of some Saturdays.

During peak traffic periods, at least four lanes, (two in each direction) and separate left-turn lanes will be maintained on both Kingston Road and Whites Road. During non-peak traffic periods, left turn lanes may be closed, and through lanes may be reduced to one lane in each direction. Road-crossing construction, business entranceways, 401 access ramp work and road resurfacing will occur at night to minimize traffic delays and maintain access to local businesses during business hours. The Region will notify residents and businesses in advance of any driveway restrictions and 401 access ramp closures. Further information and future updates will be posted on www.durham.ca/cdeap

The Region realizes that the work will be disruptive and will make every effort to complete the work as quickly as possible.
