Safety upgrades for McKinley Road begin

Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 3, traffic on McKinley Road adjacent to the reservoir will experience intermittent road closures until mid-October.

Small, controlled rock blasting will take place during these times to widen the road and provide safety upgrades. Road closures will be in effect twice daily, Monday to Friday, from 9 to 10 a.m., and 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

The project improvements include increasing the curve from a 40-metre radius to a 60-metre radius, straightening and adding a larger curve at the start of the reservoir, widening travel lanes to 3.5 metres with a one-metre shoulder and on the reservoir side adding precast concrete barriers along the road.

The $458,000 project is scheduled for completion by the end of November.
