A sure sign that spring really has sprung as the National Capital Commission has announced that the change stations and washrooms along the canal will be removed this weekend.
On Saturday, Colonel By will be closed in both directions between Pretoria Bridge and Daly from 6:45 a.m. until 2 p.m. as crews pull the chalets out of the water for another season.
On Sunday, the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will be closed in the Fifth Avenue area from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. and Colonel By Drive will be closed between Hogs Back and Bronson from 11:45 a.m. until 2:45 p.m.
These closures will also affect the pathways that run along the canal.
The NCC is urging that anyone using the paths pay attention to detour signs posted along the route.
