Notice of Madelaine Drive Road Closure at Mapleview Drive East

    Madelaine Drive will be closed at the Mapleview Drive East intersection starting on April 15, 2019 and lasting for a period of approximately three (3) weeks. This three (3) week road closure is required to properly and safely construct the new roadway, sanitary sewer, storm sewer and multiple watermain segments and connections within the intersection.

    Lanes on Mapleview Drive East will remain open, however there will be no access to/from Madelaine Drive onto Mapleview Drive East during the closure period.  There will also be detour signage in place to direct motorists around the Madelaine Drive closure and residents will still have access to their properties via Country Lane.

    This Madelaine Drive closure was originally planned to commence in late January, however it was cancelled due to the weather conditions at the time and the decision was made to postpone it until the Spring.
