Temporary closure of City Hall front entrance

Beginning Monday, March 11, the front entrance to City Hall will be closed to visitors and staff while repair and rehabilitation work takes place. During this time, access to City Hall will be maintained and pedestrian traffic will be redirected to the north entrance located off Reginald Cooper Square.

In a report to the Corporate Services Committee on January 15, 2024, City staff advised Council of the construction plan, schedule and impact of work required to complete essential repairs to the front entrance canopy. The work includes necessary structural rehabilitation, mechanical infrastructure repair and replacement, canopy soffit installation, and asbestos abatement.

These repairs will require barriers to be put in place and close the entrance for the duration of the project. Wayfinding signage will also be prominently displayed.

While the front entrance will be inaccessible, the front circle will be maintained for vehicle traffic with minor intermittent impacts and a reduced number of parking spaces. The accessible parking space and the accessible access ramp will continue to be in service.

The anticipated completion date for the construction is July 31, 2024.
