Road Work-HieronymusUkkel

There may be some more headaches for drivers along Lake Street in St. Catharines.

City crews will be closing a portion of the street at Beverley Hills Creek for replacement of a culvert.

As a result of the closure, city officials expect increased traffic at the intersection of Westgate Park Drive and Lakeshore Road and have put up temporary lights to help.

The closure will be in place until the end of next month.

Businesses on Lake Street between Lakeshore Road and the closure can still be accessed.
