Motorists can expect more traffic delays while travelling on 32nd Street as the road work moves into the final four phases for 2012.

Motorists can expect more traffic delays while travelling on 32nd Street as the road work moves into the final four phases for 2012.

Starting on Monday, 32nd Street between 40th and 47th Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

Each phase will take seven to 10 days to complete, depending on the weather.

The work includes the removal and replacement of one foot of the existing road structure.

In addition to the road rehabilitation work, construction will begin on the installation of a three-metre asphalt trail on the north side of 32nd Street. The new trail will be installed from Spruce Drive to 30th Avenue and should be completed by the end of October.

The next phase of the project focuses on the north side of 32nd Street (westbound) between 47th Avenue and 44A Avenue.

In the sixth phase, the work moves to the north side of 32nd Street (westbound) between 44A Avenue and Sifton Avenue.

Next, the work moves to the north side of 32nd Street (westbound) between Sifton Avenue and 150 metres east of the 40th Avenue and 32nd Street intersection.

After the seventh phase is completed, work will begin between the 40th Avenue and 32nd Street intersection and McBride Crescent.
