    Will existing overhead telephone/cable wiring be relocated underground.

    Kate asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, overhead wires will be removed once new street lighting is installed. These services have been relocated underground as part of the utility relocation phase of the project.

    Will King St be closed during Phase 5 of the project and if so, when will the affected local community be consulted regarding the detour/re-routing of traffic on King St?

    Davidcouch asked 11 months ago

    Good Afternoon, David:

     

    Thank you for your inquiry. 

     

    King Street will remain open for the duration of the construction.  Daily lane closures will be controlled by a flag person as required.   The Town will continue to keep the community updated with any closures or detours as construction progresses.
