April 29-July 5: Lester Road Lane Reduction and Flagging

As part of the Stage 2 O-Train South Extension Project, a flagging operation is required on Lester Road.
Crews will be installing guard rails and traffic electrical signals for a future Multi-Use Pathway crossing.  To perform this work, the lanes on Lester Road will be reduced to one lane in both east and west directions.  To ensure traffic flows in both directions, flaggers will be present.
This work is scheduled to start on April 29th and is expected to last until July 5th. The work is scheduled to happen daily from 7:00AM to 5:00PM. This schedule is subject to change.
Crews need to work near both sides of the road.  The lane reduction will allow this work to take place safely while still allowing traffic to flow in both directions.
Please see the map below for the location of the work on Lester Road just west of Albion Road South.
  • Vehicle operators and cyclists should look for and follow all construction and traffic signage.
  • Vehicle operators and cyclist shall obey all instructions from flaggers.
  • Vehicle operators and cyclists will potentially experience minor traffic delays while travelling on Lester Road in the direction of the closures.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the Stage 2 LRT project. All pedestrian, cycling, bus, and vehicular movements will generally be maintained during construction, with some detours. Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution when localized detours are in place and adhere to all posted signage when travelling to ensure safety, as patterns may have changed. Accessibility is an important consideration for the Stage 2 LRT project. The Stage 2 team makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact The safety of the public and the workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.
