Lane reduction on Queen Street starting May 27

Friday, May 24, 2024

Beginning Monday, May 27, 2024, Queen Street will be reduced to one lane between Spring Street and March Street to accommodate construction. While the lane reduction is in effect, the sidewalk on the north side of Queen Street will remain open for patrons visiting local businesses. Those needing access beyond this block should use the sidewalk on the South side. 
During this time, traffic signals at the intersection of Spring Street and Queen Street will be removed and replaced with stop signs. These signals will not be reinstalled. Instead, a pedestrian crossover (PXO) with stop control on Spring Street will be constructed on Queen Street.  
Transit users should note that the bus stop located just east of Spring Street will be temporarily removed. Other bus stops on Queen Street will be available.
Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists should be cautious in the area and follow all posted signage. The Queen Street Improvements Phase 1 project is expected to reach substantial completion by late fall with some work possibly extending into 2025 depending on the final project limits.
