Construction begins in the intersection of Adelaide Street North and King Street on Monday, May 16, as part of Phase 1 of the East London Link project. This work requires reduced lanes on Adelaide Street North between York Street and Marshall Street for approximately two months.
King Street remains closed to general traffic between William Street and Lyle Street; however, local access to all businesses and properties within these blocks is being maintained.
Pedestrian access will be maintained through the area, and navigational signs will be in place to help guide pedestrians through the construction zone. Cyclists are encouraged to use Dundas Street, where new cycling connections are available for east-west cycling through the core. Cyclists will not have access through the impacted area of Adelaide Street North for north-south trips and will need to use alternate routes.
One southbound transit stop located on the west side of Adelaide Street North between King Street and Dundas Street will be temporarily closed during this work, impacting Route 16. Transit users are advised to visit the LTC website for the latest service updates and detour information.

About the East London Link
The East London Link is a multi-year project that will revitalize more than 6 km of road from Downtown to Fanshawe College. The project will add transportation and transit improvements above ground, while repairing and replacing aging sewers, watermains and other underground infrastructure.
Phase 1 East London Link construction began earlier this year between Adelaide Street North and Lyle Street. Construction is planned to be completed in December 2022, with some carry-over work into spring and summer 2023.
