Reconstruction of a section of West 5th Street along St. Joseph’s new mental health hospital begins Monday.
The work involves road and sidewalk reconstruction and water main replacement of West 5th between Fennell Avenue West and Gateview Drive.
Associated work will also occur on Brantdale Avenue, Claremont Drive and James Mountain Road, said the city’s public works department.
Lane restrictions will be required, so motorists should expect delays in the area and may want to consider using an alternate escarpment access, advises public works. HSR transit may also experience some delays in this area.
This part of the project is expected to be completed by December. A second phase of the project on West 5th Street will occur in 2015.
