Cleary Avenue at Richmond Road.
A new access road with a signalized intersection has been constructed from Richmond Road through Kristy’s (809 Richmond Road) to Cleary Avenue. This road is an exclusive “Private Entrance” to the Unitarian Congregation and Unitarian House properties, the River Parkway Children’s Centre and 75 Cleary Avenue. This includes residents and approved visitors to these properties, as well as anyone attending the congregation or Children’s Centre, or conducting approved business access to the properties.
Space has been created to allow trucks and service delivery vehicles, etc., to 75 Cleary to make a 3-point turn to return back along Cleary Avenue and through the new access road to Richmond Road.
Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, allow for added travel time and use extra caution when moving through active construction corridors as traffic patterns change.
Snow clearing activities will be maintained.
A temporary pathway has been constructed from Richmond Road along the private roadway and north of the overflow parking lot to connect to the multi-use pathway along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (SJAM). Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution and adhere to posted signage to ensure safety.
