TRAF­FIC DE­LAYS

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

Traf­fic de­lays should be ex­pected to­day and to­mor­row in Char­lot­te­town at the in­ter­sec­tion of Cap­i­tal Drive and North River Road/Lower Malpeque Road (to/from Corn­wall). The City of Char­lot­te­town will be re­plac­ing an aged, de­te­ri­o­rat­ing storm cul­vert un­der this in­ter­sec­tion in the fall, and this week’s de­lay is nec­es­sary to cre­ate a tem­po­rary di­ver­sion channel for storm flows dur­ing the main con­struc­tion.

This sec­tion could be re­duced to one lane of traf­fic trav­el­ling in each di­rec­tion, with po­ten­tial de­lays to traf­fic trav­el­ling through the site. Traf­fic sig­nals will con­tinue to con­trol all ve­hi­cles at this in­ter­sec­tion. The side­walk on the west side of Lower Malpeque Road will be closed dur­ing con­struc­tion and pedes­tri­ans will be di­rected to use the cross­walk at Kirk­dale Drive and to use side­walks on the east side. Sim­i­lar work is ex­pected to oc­cur on the Lower Malpeque Road (to/from Mil­ton) July 31 and Aug. 1. Mo­torists are ad­vised to seek al­ter­nate routes.
