Upcoming Intersection Work Along Pandora Avenue

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are advised that starting today the intersection of Pandora Avenue and Douglas Street will have travel lanes closed in preparation to dig trenches across Douglas Street to install underground utilities starting Monday. Advance signage is in place to advise both northbound and southbound motorists of the construction and help divert traffic to other roadways during the construction period.

The work taking place today and tomorrow will cause some traffic disruptions, but the significant impacts to traffic are expected to take place starting on Monday January 9. The same process will take place the following week (January 16 – 20) at the intersection of Blanshard and Pandora. The work taking place is expected to take approximately one week at each intersection.

Flag-persons and signage will be directing vehicle traffic, cyclists and pedestrians moving through the intersections and some lane closures and turning restrictions are necessary in order to help safely control traffic. Some areas of the sidewalk may also be closed during the work, but there will be room for pedestrian and wheelchair access. Due to the nature of the work, some significant noise can also be expected.
