I experienced this yesterday, all I can think of is it's because of what's coming next there, but if so then they could have obviously waited on it.

I had a good look at the project while sitting there in traffic, they have a hell of a lot of work in front of them, I can just imagine how bad traffic will be soon.

The only explanation I can think of is that they want to reconstruct the west side of the intersection in order to tie-into the bridge they've been building. I think it was a huge oversight to think that 1 lane northbound would be sufficient. They should have tried to re-work their construction phasing and staging so they could have 1 lane north and 1 lane for a right turn (east onto Major Mac).

Cosimo, would you say we're looking at at least 6 months of traffic hell before they're done and things actually get better?

I would think so. If I'm guessing right then they'll have to reconfigure the whole west side and tie into the bridge (so everything west of the concrete jersey barriers. It looks like they'll have to raise the whole intersection to match the bridge level. Then they'll flip traffic to the newly modified/constructed west side so they can reconstruct the east side. There's a link at the end of this post to the Region's website for the project. The website said the work up to Hwy 27 should be complete this year so that should mitigate most of the impacts on us.

OK, as for the whole thing, the sign says they're aiming for a completion date of Fall 2021, that's a massive job though and much needed too.

Thanks, Cosimo.
