Are the GRT buses going to be rerouted again?
GRT will try to stay on regular routing as much as possible. When a
detour is necessary, Queenston Rd will be used in the Southbound direction and
Duke St will be used in the Northbound direction.
when asphalt pavement would be completed please
Asphalt paving is scheduled to start later this week. It should be complete by early next week.
When Year 1 construction shuts down in November, will King Street be left with traffic only on one side of the street throughout the winter?
When Year 1 construction shuts down in November, traffic will be returned to the centre of King Street and on-street parking will be available on both sides of King Street through the winter months.
Hello! Just wondering if there is an approximate date on when there will be parking in front of the library again? Thanks!
On-street parking in front of the library is expected to return in mid to late fall of this year.
Once construction is complete on the library side of the road, we will put both lanes of traffic on that side while we work on the opposite side of the road. During these two stages of the work, parking cannot be provided on-street. After these two stages are finished, some additional work will need to be completed while traffic is back in the middle of the road so there may be some additional disruptions to parking at that time.
Crews are making good progress and it is possible that on-street parking in front of the library may return sooner than expected but there is still a lot of work to be finished so we cannot commit to a firm date.
Will left turns from Eagle S. to King St. be stopped during construction? I believe a lot of individuals will try to use Hamilton, Queenston or Moore as quick routes. This will put seniors and children at risk.
Left turns from Eagle Street South to King Street East will continue throughout construction.
We are aware of the concerns about King Street traffic using the local side streets and the associated speeding and safety concerns.
City of Cambridge staff are
preparing a report for the April 9th Planning & Development Committee
meeting regarding traffic calming recommendations for the City streets
surrounding King Street. Region staff will be working with City staff to implement
their plan where required on an as-needed basis.
why are there not more EV charging stations in the downtown core? if there is construction going on already in some of the lots, you may as well invest in some modern infrastructure now.
the King Street parking lot between Waterloo Street and Argyle Street will be impacted by the project, the lot itself
will not be under construction. The King Street parking lot is scheduled for
renewal in 2021 under the City’s Capital Program. Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station
infrastructure will be considered at that time.
There are no other City
parking lots impacted by the reconstruction of King Street. Should you wish to discuss this further, please contact the City of Cambridge.
