Lake Street closure starting next week in St.Catharines

Lake street closure

A heads up for St.Catharines drivers that a portion of Lake Street will be closed next week.

Crews will be replacing the culvert on Lake between 589 Lake Street and Pioneer Court starting Wednesday August 14th until September 30th.

The work is being done due to the declining condition of the existing structure.

Pedestrian traffic is also being banned.

Due to the expected increase of traffic at the intersection of Westgate Park Drive and Lakeshore Road, a temporary signal has been installed at this intersection.

A signed detour will be posted.

Access from Lake Street to businesses located between Lakeshore Road and the closure will be maintained.
