Three construction projects that significantly impact traffic are now taking place along the uptown portion of Regent Street. These projects will continue through August 31, 2016. Motorists are asked to be patient as traffic delays are to be expected, especially in the city’s uptown area. Please review the details below and in the related content for information about the project and ways motorists can help reduce delays.
When completed, these construction projects will help improve traffic flow in the area. By completing the work at the same time, the impact on motorists and businesses in the area will be limited to one construction season; overall construction costs will be reduced; and ultimately, traffic flow will be improved.
The Regent/Prospect intersection is Fredericton’s busiest intersection with about 47,000 vehicles crossing through it each day. As a result, these projects will have a very big effect on uptown traffic. Lengthy traffic delays could occur if motorists do not change their habits. Options include:
It’s recommended that motorists plan their route uptown ahead of time and allow extra time for travel regardless of which route they choose. Over the coming weeks, meetings will be held for the public and with the businesses in area to discuss the project further.
Watch for more details over the coming weeks.
