Project Background

As a requirement of a land transaction with CP Rail to permit the construction of additional road surface and landscaping at the westerly end of the Victoria Street West Improvement Project, the City committed to building a safety fence from the Overlanders Bridge to the west side of the Sun Life building at 280 Victoria Street West.  

Project Scope

This project includes the construction of 350 m (1,100 ft.) of fencing from Overlanders Bridge to the Sun Life building, and includes a small retaining wall component. 

Traffic Impacts

For approximately three weeks, a detour will be in place for all westbound traffic during working hours. Detours will be removed in the evenings and on weekends. Please see the map below for details. 

Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible. Motorists are asked to obey all traffic control personnel and signage when drivingthrough the construction zone.

Businesses within the construction zone are open and accessible for eastbound traffic.
