At long last, the Waterdown Bypass, known as Waterdown North Drive, will start construction in May. The infamous Bypass was approved in 2007-2014. The new intersection on Centre Road just north of Northlawn will be constructed first. Centre Road will be closed in both directions for approximately 3-4 months (weather permitting) with no access, except for local residents, north or south from Nisbet Boulevard to roughly 500m north on Centre Road with no through traffic access. However, local access to all residential properties within this stretch will be maintained at all times from either the south or north ends. To reach Joe Sams Park, St. Thomas Church and Guardian Angels School, a detour route via Robson Road will be signed.
The construction of the new intersection on Centre Road will include culverts, additional storm water and sanitary sewer infrastructure, a new larger watermain and the implementation of a new intersection. The new Bypass road will then be constructed heading east behind Alexander Place then curve south to connect with Parkside Drive at the CNCP railway tracks. Parkside Drive east of the rail tracks will be widened to a four lane road with a full stop light at Robson Road then connecting to Avonsyde Boulevard to Dundas Street. Construction (weather permitting) will be ongoing for 2021 and scheduled for completion in 2022.
Notices to local residents will be circulated approximately a week prior to the start of construction on Centre Road and the closure, estimated to begin by the end of May.
