Dufferin Avenue Construction Update October 3, 2023

Work is beginning this month on the final phase of the Dufferin Avenue Reconstruction Project.

Starting on October 4th, the following traffic disruptions will take place:

  • Closure of Arnold Street at the Dufferin Avenue intersection from October 4th to October 13th, 2023

  • Lane reductions on Dufferin Avenue between Walnut Drive to McNaughton Avenue from October 4th to December 1st, 2023

Access to Arnold Street will be available using Elm Drive/Garnet Street during the closure at Dufferin Avenue. Traffic will be maintained on Dufferin Avenue at all times. Motorists can expect to see lane reductions along Dufferin Avenue as crews work to complete storm sewer and watermain work and undertake the final phase of road work along the corridor.

Access to all properties and businesses will be maintained at all times. During construction, the public is encouraged to plan travel in advance, consider alternate routes, follow signage and be patient while traveling in and around construction areas.

The Dufferin Avenue Reconstruction project involves the rehabilitation of 1.9 kilometres of Dufferin Avenue from McNaughton Avenue to Walnut Drive, including the reconstruction of storm sewers and watermain pipes, rehabilitation of the asphalt road, reconstruction of existing sidewalks, traffic signals, and boulevard restoration. Completion of all underground pipes, road and sidewalk work is scheduled for December 2023, with boulevard restoration to be completed in Spring 2024. Chatham-Kent thanks residents for their patience as this important infrastructure work is completed.
