Work includes the construction of the new self-supporting bridge, cleaning and painting of the heritage bridge, and will be completed by mid-July 2021.
No pedestrian access and parking lot closed
During this construction work, Norwich Street East will be closed from Arthur Street North to the Downtown Trail adjacent to Cardigan Street. This closure includes the pedestrian bridge over the Speed River, the municipal parking lot next to the bridge, and the trail access from the municipal parking lot to Joseph Wolfond Park East.

Property access
Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways during construction working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.). Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property and delays should be expected.

City services
There will be no interruption to any City services during construction. Waste collection will not be affected. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb, as per your regular schedule.

The City appreciates your patience, understanding and co-operation during this important construction project. Any updates will be posted on
