The final roundabout configuration for the intersection of Glendale Ave. and York Rd. in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Drivers who use Glendale Ave. in Niagara-on-the-Lake may get a sense of deja-vu as they make their way through traffic these days.

Just six months after construction put their final touches on the diverging diamond interchange over the QEW, traffic is now about to slow down again as the Glendale Ave. and York Rd. intersection is under construction as workers build a roundabout.

Work began on Monday (May 29) and will likely continue until sometime in July when the project is expected to be complete.

The Town is telling drivers that lane reductions and changes to the intersection layout will occur during different stages of the roundabout construction.

However, on the positive side, construction on the Airport Road loop ramp was just completed and is now open to traffic, “aiding in traffic flow on Glendale Avenue northbound while construction occurs at the Glendale Avenue/York Road intersection.”
