Ongoing: Periodic closures continue in and around the University

March 3, 2017

Lane restrictions and pedestrian access closures will occur periodically on the CN railway crossings at Bearinger Road, Columbia Street and University Avenue to complete the installation of temporary and permanent railway signals as well as sidewalks. Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians, and expect some traffic congestion during peak travel times.

The trail from Seagram to University will have intermittent closures as work progresses in this area. Please follow pedestrian signage in the area.

Temporary closures at the pedestrian crossings on campus may be required as well.
