Traffic update: Work at Van Horne hill expected to be completed by midnight

Plan your routes this week as there will be multiple road projects around the city

An excavation is underway on the Van Horne hill due to a water leak between Paris Street and Lourdes Street.

One lane is being maintained in each direction. The work is expected to be finished by midnight, at which point the road will return to normal.

Other traffic interuptions may occur due to the following projects:
