Whitehorse – Residents are advised that construction will begin on Wednesday, August 24 at the intersection of Lewes Boulevard, Alsek Road, and Selkirk Street.
The project is being led by the Government of Yukon’s contractor, Norcope Construction Group, which will be installing a new storm water drainage system, as well as upgrading the pavement, sidewalks, and traffic lights.
In order to accommodate the work, the traffic lights will be temporarily removed, and the intersection will be controlled by a three-way stop. Temporary traffic detours will also be in place.
Pedestrians are asked to use the crosswalk with flashing lights about 150 metres north along Lewes Boulevard.
Construction is expected to be completed by September 24, weather dependent.
