Johnston Road is partially closed to support Johnston Road Phase 2

Johnston Road will have one lane open for the duration of the project, which will take approximately 6 to 8 months to complete. Crews will be working Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. with extended hours during evenings and weekends, as needed.

April 10, 2024 Update

Utility locates along Johnston Road are now complete and the information gathered is being utilized for design modifications. Construction will resume on the sanitary main this week and the overall schedule is not expected to have been impacted by the necessary utility locate work.

The City would like to emphasize that, despite the recent period of reduced physical activity on-site, our project team has been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure a swift return to construction.

Coffee Shop Chat: The first 'coffee shop chat' occurred on Wednesday, April 10. Staff, consultants and contractors were present to discuss the project progress and answer any questions that residents and businesses owners had. Staff anticipate a second ‘coffee shop chat’ in a months time at a location/time still to be determined. 

Bus Routes: The following bus routes have detours in place: 362, 363, 351, 531, 321, 345, 350, 354. Visit for more information on bus detours.  

Shop local! Businesses are open during construction. While we work to enhance our infrastructure, we encourage everyone to show support for our local businesses. By choosing to shop local, we can ensure the continued success of our community and keep the local economy strong.

Staff will continue to post project updates when available.

Business will remain open during construction

Construction management strategies include:

  • Maintaining clear and well-marked sidewalk access to businesses, along with directional signage
  • Providing free parking in the vicinity to encourage patronage
  • Seeking additional input and ideas from business owners and residents
