The City's Central Downtown Infrastructure Improvement Project will continue on South Loudoun Street beginning Monday, October 17. During construction, S. Loudoun Street from Cork to Gerrard will be closed to parking and through traffic one block at a time (beginning at Cork Street) for approximately one month per block. Detour routes will be marked, but access will be maintained for local traffic and emergency vehicles only.

To-date, the following areas are have been completed:

  • N. Loudoun Street (Fairfax to Wyck)
  • Washington Street (Boscawen to Piccadilly)
  • Amherst Street (Braddock to Boscawen)
  • Stewart Street (Boscawen to Amherst)
