Temporary traffic changes returning to Dundas Place

Beginning Thursday, April 14, temporary traffic changes will be in effect on Dundas Place between Ridout Street and Wellington Street, to maintain a safe cycling and pedestrian environment on Dundas Place during nearby construction downtown.

Barriers will be installed at both ends of Dundas Place, restricting in-bound vehicle access at Ridout and Wellington Streets. Instead, drivers will be able to access Dundas Place from Talbot, Richmond, and Clarence Streets to reach their destinations. Vehicles will still be able to exit Dundas Place at Ridout and Wellington Streets. 

Cyclists and pedestrians will continue to have unrestricted access to enter Dundas Place from all directions, including Ridout and Wellington Streets, and cyclists will still use the two general traffic lanes that are in place today for east-west connections. Click here for more information.
