The contractor is continuing to work diligently along 14th Avenue and to accommodate the increased activity, 14th Avenue will be closed, with local traffic maintained, from Grand Street to Knight Avenue during daytime working hours. 

Local residents, transit and emergency services will continue to have access. The area is relatively straightforward to detour however, motorists are reminded to respect the speed limit when using their alternate routes. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
