Portage Avenue intersections to be closed temporarily


The intersections at Portage Avenue and First St. East and Portage Avenue and Second St. East will be closed temporarily Monday due to road construction.
Bay City Contractors will be placing and shaping granular “A” material along Portage Avenue between First and Second St. East starting on Monday at noon in order to finalize the preparation of the roadbed for paving.
There will be a short period of time (less than two hours long) during the day when the Portage Avenue and First St. East intersection and Portage and Second St. East intersection will be shut down to through traffic.
Traffic control signs will be installed at Mowat Avenue and Victoria Avenue warning the public of the road closures.
The exact time of each closure event is unknown at this time.
Looking ahead to the next week, asphalt will be laid on that same stretch of Portage Avenue starting on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
