This is a notice to inform the public that construction crews will continue to work on both sides of Victoria Street from the bridge to Tamarac Avenue throughout the months of September and October. New sidewalks and accessible pedestrian crossings are to be installed accompanied by enhancements to the side streets and arena entrance. Due to the large volume of workers and heavy equipment, vehicle traffic flow will be further affected. Motorists should expect delays Monday through Saturday 7am – 9pm and we ask that all drivers allow for extra time when traveling through downtown.

Safety is paramount, therefore we ask that all motorists to please be patient, drive slowly, obey signage and pay attention to the traffic control personnel. We also ask pedestrians to please use the designated pedestrian routes as highlighted on the attached map and to please obey the traffic control personnel when crossing Victoria St. We are continuously investigating opportunities to improve the flow of vehicles and pedestrians through the affected areas.

The City of Trail thanks you for your continued patience throughout this project. The completed project will further highlight the sense of a homeland, promote local heritage and encourage local and pass-through traffic to enter the downtown centre.

Please contact the City of Trail Engineering Department, 250-364-0822 if you require any information regarding the project.

Thank you,

The City of Trail
