John Street Reconstruction Road Closures

The City of North Bay would like to inform the public about an upcoming traffic disruption along Worthington Street and John Street.

Beginning Monday, October 1st, Worthington Street will be closed in both directions between Regina Street and Metcalfe Street for a period of three days in order to reconstruct the underground infrastructure at the John and Worthington intersection. A detour will be put in place to direct traffic around the construction area.

For southbound traffic, Worthington Street is the only access to the Morris Street and Whitson Street area. Consequently, this traffic must be detoured down to West Ferris in order to allow traffic to turn around and head back to the northbound accesses at Morris Street and Metcalfe Street.

The detour will consist of using Regina Street, Main Street, the Overpass, Lakeshore Drive, Charles Street, Lee Avenue, and Judge Avenue to head back to the Overpass and to the northbound accesses to the area. Traffic leaving this area will be detoured to exit via McIntyre Street East. A sketch detailing the detour route is attached.

It should also be noted that John Street traffic will remain closed between Hardy Street and McIntyre Street East; however local traffic will be maintained to provide access to residences and businesses in the immediate area. Detour signs will be posted.
