More watermain repairs in Brampton close lanes on Queen Street
Published September 6, 2022 at 4:00 pm
Traffic on Queen Street in Brampton could get a bit tangled for the next few months due to construction.
Starting on Tuesday (Sept. 6), crews from the Region of Peel have begun working to replace the ageing watermains and sanitary sewers along Queen to maintain and improve existing water and wastewater services.
The improvements mean Queen Street West will be reduced to one lane of traffic in either direction between Chapel St. and Mill St. South for the next three months, the Region said in a release.
On-street parking will also be removed and converted into through traffic lanes, but the lack of street parking has led to parking garages at Nelson Square, Market Square, West Tower, City Hall and John Street Garage to be opened up for use free of charge.
The Region is advising pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers to put safety first when in the construction zone and to be aware of their surroundings.
While the project is estimated to last around three months, the Region says weather and other unpredictable events may change the date of these traffic impacts.
