Big Dig to Shut Down Princess and Barrie Street Intersection

The Big Dig is moving up Princess Street.

Starting on Monday, March 12, the intersection of Princess and Barrie Streets will be closed.

North and south of the intersection will remain open to local traffic, and drivers will still be able to access the Metro parking lot.

Businesses will remain open and Princess will be accessible by two way traffic from Division to Barrie.

"This phase of Princess Street reconstruction is on schedule and we are excited for this milestone. We are continuing to work with the contractor to ensure access to businesses remains open including allowing two-way traffic along a section of Princess Street," says Mark Campbell, director of engineering.

The final phase of construction will continue to move up Princess Street to Division over the coming months.

Princess Street is scheduled to re-open to traffic on July 1.
