If you have questions about this construction project related to the current COVID-19 pandemic, please review the information provided by the Region of Waterloo on the Construction and Road Closures page.
The Region’s contractor Navacon Construction Inc. has temporarily closed King Street to eastbound traffic between Lowther Street and Bishop Street to safely install the watermain and rebuild the road as quickly as possible. One-way traffic in the westbound direction will continue to be permitted during this stage of the work. The Region will provide a signed detour route for eastbound traffic (including heavy trucks) using Eagle Street, Hespeler Road and Bishop Street. View the Detour Map here.
King Street is tentatively expected to re-open on or around December 11, weather permitting. Crews are working hard to complete the remaining road works and get the street opened.
Access to businesses and residential properties on both sides of King Street will be maintained within the closure limits, but traffic will only be permitted to travel in the westbound direction.
