Be Prepared to Stop: Stop Signs Reinstalled on Second Ave. 
With Connecting Link construction wrapping up for the season, the temporary detour in place along Brunette Rd. and Second Ave. will be removed. Algonquin Blvd. E. is expected to open early the week of November 13, 2023. The City’s Traffic Dept. is prioritizing the replacement of stop signs along Second Ave. at the intersections of Spruce St. S. and Balsam St. S. Motorists should be prepared to stop on Monday, November 13.

Both intersections along Second Ave. will be returned to an all-way or 4-way stop with all motor vehicles on approach coming to a complete stop. At a 4-way stop, the first vehicle to come to a complete stop has the right-of-way. If two or more cars stop at the same time, right-of-way goes to the vehicle on the right.

This year, construction has been completed on Connecting Link Segment 6 through the Mountjoy intersection, Segment 7 from Mountjoy to just east of Balsam St. N., and Segment 2 on Riverside Dr. from Shirley St. to Government Rd. The downtown segments of the Connecting Link are part of a three-year contract, with construction on Segment 8 beginning next spring. Segment 8 will include the removal of the underpass on Algonquin Blvd. E. and the addition of a dedicated snowmobile crossing just east of Brunette Rd.
