Tower crane removal to close Albert Street at Union Sept. 13-14

Removal of tower crane requires Albert Street closure south of Union Street for vehicle and foot traffic.

Albert Street, immediately south of Union Street, will be closed to vehicle and pedestrians traffic on Monday, Sept. 13 and Tuesday, Sept. 14. The street adjacent to the student residence construction site is being closed for safety while a mobile crane is used to help dismantle the large tower crane that has been in use there.

The closure will not impact access to the laneway immediately south of Union Street but will limit access and egress to the south on Albert Street. It will remain accessible from Union Street only.

Similarly, cars exiting the Tindall Field underground parking lot will only be able to exit to the south along Albert and will not be able to exit northward to Union Street. Traffic will need to detour from the west via Queen’s Crescent and Collingwood Street, Bader Lane, and University Avenue to the east, or Albert Street and King Street to the south.
