Union Street closure scheduled for May 23-31 as JDUC work continues

May 11, 2023


Union Street will be closed to all traffic between University Avenue and Fifth Field Company Lane, from Tuesday, May 23 through Wednesday, May 31 to allow crews to connect the John Deutsch University Centre (JDUC) project to municipal services.

The sidewalk on the north side of Union Street will also be closed to pedestrian traffic. The sidewalk on the south side of Union Street will remain open and access to surrounding buildings will not be impacted.

Crews will be excavating trenches for new utility connections, which will require the intermittent use of rock breaking. Work to tie into the existing services is not expected to have an impact on utilities servicing the surrounding buildings.

Work on other related services to the west of the JDUC is expected to be completed by May 19, which will allow University Avenue to be opened temporarily to help offset the Union Street closure.

Work on the JDUC renovation is progressing on schedule and on budget. Crews hope to have the open pit backfilled by the end on May, and the structural steel and roof in place by the end of September.

For more information on this project, please see the JDUC Revitalization webpage on the Facilities website.
