The Public Works Department would like to advise that a watermain break has happened on King Street East, close to the Pioneer Gas Station. Public Works staff are on-site preparing to excavate and repair the watermain. In order to perform the excavation and repairs safely and efficiently, King Street East will be closed to through traffic. A detour will be in place shortly. The detour will be as follows;
King Street East – Full Road Closure between Wilson Drive and Elizabeth Drive (see image below).
The detour for eastbound and westbound traffic on King Street will be via Talbot Place/Garden Street. Detour signage will be in place. Residents in the area of Garden Street (between Herbert Street and Talbot Place), and Talbot Place (between Wilson Drive and Garden Street) are asked to not park on the street until the repairs have been completed the detour removed.
Residents and Businesses on King Street, east of Elizabeth Drive will experience low water pressure while repairs are taking place. There may also be a discolouration of water as well. If this is the case, please run your cold water supply at a fixture until the discoloration clears.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience while staff performs these repairs. If you have any questions pertaining to this unscheduled work, please contact the undersigned.
