Drivers who use Albert Street between Booth Street and City Centre Avenue will notice some changes - starting with lane closures on Monday morning.
Albert St. will be down to one lane in each direction until the winter.
The lane reductions are just a start for the Albert Street sewer, watermain and road rehabilitation project, which will replace and improve the infrastructure along the street.
The project will include the installation of new sewers, a new watermain and new pavement which will make way for future segregated bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks.
During the construction project the local bus routes will continue through the area but bus stops may be temporarily relocated.
The city says this project is in preparation for the Bus Rapid Transit detour planned for 2016 as work on the new Confederation Line of the LRT is being done.
