Work on the new Bergeron Centre will cause disruptions to pedestrian and vehicular traffic

Construction sign

The natural gas installation for the new Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence, which began Wednesday, Oct. 29, will last for approximately 10 working days.

A directional drilling machine will be working east of the William Small Centre on two segments, one to the north and one to the south of Arboretum Lane. An open cut excavation will then occur in the eastbound side of Arboretum Lane with single-lane traffic control impacting the Arboretum Lane Parking Garage and the Scott Library loading dock. Dates for the Arboretum Lane portion will be communicated when finalized.

On approximately Monday, Nov. 10, a natural gas disruption will be scheduled for the Petrie Science & Engineering building and the William Small Centre.

How will this impact the York community?

  • Pedestrians normally using this route will be detoured around the site.
  • The contractor performing the work will be available at all times to direct pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the work zone.

When travelling throughout the construction zone, please watch for and obey all traffic signs and traffic control personnel.
