The City of St. Thomas Council approved on August 8th the temporary road closure of First Avenue from Talbot Street southerly to Steele Street to facilitate the removal of the CASO rail underpass by TBR Developments and the restoration of the roadway by the City. A detour route has been developed to direct north south vehicular traffic from First Avenue to Fairview Avenue.
The roadway closure is anticipated to last until early September. Local access to residents and commercial properties will be provided along First Avenue. No through access for vehicles or pedestrians will be permitted along First Street from Steele Street to Talbot Street.
The existing transit routes will be modified to accommodate the road closure.
