city block featCity officials report that Phase 1 of the 3rd Avenue East (Grey Road 15) reconstruction project will commence April 14, 2015.

The City anticipates that Phase 1 of this extensive project will require four to five weeks to complete. Phase 1 is the realignment of 3rd Avenue East and East Bayshore Road intersection.

This stage of the reconstruction will be controlled by Traffic Control Persons allowing the contractor to leave 3rd Avenue East open to through traffic until Phase 2 begins.

Further communication with the public will be provided prior to the start of Phase 2, at which time 3rd Avenue East will be closed to through traffic and the detours will be in full effect. Construction activities are expected to be completed in the Fall of 2015.
