the downtown core, crews will remove the Mill Street traffic lights and replace them with two sets — a pedestrian crossing just steps south of Sterne Street and a full three-way traffic light at
Hickman Drive by the north end of Humber River Bridge.
Improvements to the Humber River Bridge and the area just north of the downtown core include repairs to the concrete under the bridge, removing the sidewalk on the west side of the bridge, widening
the sidewalk on the east side and installing traffic lights at Hickman Drive.
south side of King Street, crews will be undertaking culvert repairs, rehab and repair of the retaining walls that stretch up to Elizabeth Street on the east side of Highway 50 and Willow Street on
the west side, sidewalk widening and improvements to the street lighting.

for better final results with asphalt and concrete.

At the King Street and Queen Street intersection in downtown Bolton, turning
trucks often went over boulevards and sidewalks, due to a shortage of space, creating safety concerns for pedestrians. As a result of this a restriction prohibiting trucks from turning at the
intersection was implemented.
The turn restrictions will remain in place to prevent
local delivery vehicles (local deliveries and collections trucks are not permitted to turn at the intersection but are exempt from heavy truck restrictions if the location cannot be reached by any
other road and provided that the route taken is the shortest possible to and from the location on the truck restricted route) from turning at King Street and Queen Street.
