The Columbia corridor upgrade project has resulted in a road closure at McGill Road and Columbia Street West in Sahali.
In order to conduct water main tie-ins, the east side of the McGill Road/Columbia Street West intersection was closed on Sunday, July 18, at 6 p.m. and is expected to reopen on the morning of Tuesday, July 20.
During daytime hours (7 a.m. 6 p.m.), the traffic signals at McGill Road and Columbia Street West will be turned off and the intersection will be controlled by traffic control personnel.
Westbound traffic on McGill Road will be permitted through the intersection, but there will be no through traffic eastbound on McGill Road. From 6 p.m. to 7 a.m., the road will be fully closed to both eastbound and westbound traffic, with a detour in place via the Columbia Street West frontage road to Pemberton Terrace.
Transit will also be detoured off of McGill Road to Arrowstone Drive, with temporary stops in place.
