UPDATED: Curbs to be poured on Reid Street, businesses still accessible

There will be 24 hour security on site from the time the curbs are poured

Curbs will be poured on phase one of the Reid Street construction project tomorrow (July 5).

Pedestrians will not be able to cross the road or walk through the construction site in phase I of the project on Thursday. The construction area is expected to remain closed off for a full 24 hours.

However, businesses remain open and pedestrians will have full access to shops. Just be sure to follow the signage and flags to avoid construction areas.

Tracey Roenicke, the community liaison for Eagle Rock construction, the company currently redeveloping Reid Street, says there will be security working the entire time the street is closed from pedestrian and vehicle access.

“The curb has to cure for 24 hours… If anything is compromised, then once it sets we have to go back in and cut it again,” says Roenicke.

There will be signage in place directing people around the construction.

All of the small pedestrian crossings that have been in place for phase I will be eliminated until the curbs have set.

Phase I starts at Carson Avenue and ends before St. Laurent Avenue near the theatre.
