Section of Bronson Avenue closing to northbound traffic

Bronson Avenue will be closed again for construction Monday starting at 9 a.m. between Somerset Street and Laurier Avenue, according to the City of Ottawa.

Drivers should expect delays, as northbound traffic on Bronson Avenue will be detoured west onto Kent Street. Southbound traffic, however, will remain intact.

Alternate routes for OC Transpo buses have also been established and signs will be in place to direct customers who want to access local businesses, which will remain open during construction.

The construction marks the beginning of the second phase of the two-year, $30 million Bronson reconstruction project replacing water and sewer pipes, some of which are 130 years old.

All Bronson Avenue construction is scheduled to be completed in September 2013 while side street construction should be done by December 2013, according to the City of Ottawa.
