Preston Construction Starts Soon
The Preston Street streetscaping project starts up again soon. Preliminary work by Rogers, Bell and Enbridge is already underway. Heavy construction begins on the sections south of Oak Street on April 14 (after Easter weekend).
Work on the section from Spruce north to Albert Street begins the beginning of May.
The intersections of Preston and Albert, Somerset, Gladstone, Beach, and Carling may not be given their decorative paving until 2010.
The City is holding a public briefing to remind residents and businesses of the scope of the project and what is being built where, on March 31st at 7pm at Plant Recreation Centre. That meeting will also cover the planned detour routes.
