Today is the last day of the full road closure on Wellington Avenue.

Rainy weather earlier in the week was also a factor. The contractor could not do concrete curbing work as planned, and that has pushed final completion into next week.

However, there a full road closure is not required to finish along Wellington Avenue, and the street should be open to traffic by the end of the day, Friday, April 24.
