Construction crews and equipment will mobilize to the intersection between Manor Street and Douglas Road to prepare for work after the holidays. </p><p>In January 2024, construction crews will begin water main installation on Douglas Road, between Regent Street and Dominion Street. Work will take place in this area for approximately four to five weeks.
