REF NO.: 46

SUBJECT: Clinch Crescent planned traffic interruptions

DATE: July 23

Memorial University is notifying the public of planned vehicular and pedestrian traffic interruptions in the area of Clinch Crescent from July 27-Aug. 31.
These interruptions will facilitate work to upgrade existing underground water main and sanitary and storm sewers for the Animal Resource Centre construction project. Clinch Crescent will be reduced to one lane during construction hours. Flag persons will maintain two-way traffic during lane reductions. For periods outside construction hours, Clinch Crescent will remain open for two lane traffic.
This work also involves the closure of a section of sidewalk along Clinch Crescent. Pedestrians will be directed to use a detour around the construction site. Please see a detailed map online.
