Watch for traffic interruptions from El Dorado to McClure roads for most of this week.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 27, to Friday, Oct 29, the last significant road network interruptions will occur on Lakeshore Road from El Dorado and McClure roads for final paving, weather permitting.

Paving is scheduled to start at the Bellevue Creek bridge near St. Andrews Anglican Church at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 27, and again on Wednesday, Oct. 28.  Lakeshore Road will be closed to southbound traffic from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and thru-southbound traffic will be detoured via Dehart Road.

Anne McClymont school drop-off for southbound motorists will be allowed until 9 a.m. only via Lakeshore Road to Eldorado Road. Single-lane, alternating traffic will be in effect from 12 to 7 p.m. for both north and southbound traffic. Motorists can expect delays of 30 minutes.

Thursday, Oct. 27 to Friday, Oct. 29, periodic, single-lane alternating traffic is to be expected between 7:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. for both northbound and southbound traffic. Motorists will experience delays and are urged to give themselves extra time or use alternate routes.

Remaining works include streetlights, landscaping and property remediation with completion scheduled in November 2015.

Improvements to this section of Lakeshore Road includes sidewalks, curb and gutters, a multi-use pathway, on-road bike lanes and pedestrian and roadway lighting improvements.
