Temporary Road Closures in Springhill

UPDATE
With the number of trucks in and out of the demolition site, the flagging company feels that in the interest of public safety the road remain closed due to the potential collisions or debris that may fall on vehicles. Consequently, it will be a few more days till the road can be fully opened. The best prognosis at this point is to have the road open at the earliest on Monday June 24 and the latest on Wednesday June 26.
We will post another update once the road is opened.
We wish to thank all residents and businesses impacted by this closure for their patience, commitment to public safety and cooperation.
