o Alexander Drive, between Orlebar Street and Gerald Street
o Lower Malpeque, between Old Moore Court and Gates Drive

• Richmond Street, between Rochford Street and Pownal Street will be closed for the day Thursday beginning at 7 a.m. This closure is necessary for a storm water line to be installed. Local traffic will be permitted but motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.

• Spencer Drive, between Babineau Avenue and Towers Road will closed. This closure is necessary for the construction of the new road to connect Towers Rd and Spencer Dr. Traffic control personnel on site to help direct drivers around the site. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes to avoid delays.

• Work continues on the new library on Queen Street, between Richmond Street and Sydney Street. This section of sidewalk remains open to pedestrian traffic with signage in place as this work is ongoing.
• A section of the boardwalk that runs along the waterfront parallel to Haviland Street, adjacent to the Culinary Institute and the Armoury, will be closed to pedestrians during the construction of a project at 15 Haviland Street. Those using the boardwalk will need to go around the site while exploratory excavation work related to a future building and the existing stormwater pipe is completed.

• Mount Edward Road, from Allan Street to Longworth, will be reduced to stop-and-go traffic, as Public Works will be milling that section of the street. Flaggers will be on hand. Sidewalks in this area will be open, and work is weather-dependent.
