The Gateway Roundabout Project at the west end of Talbot Street is entering it's second phase on Friday (May 19). Phase two consists of building the south leg of the roundabout at Sunset Drive.
As a result the south portion of Sunset Drive is closing and Talbot Hill will be opening up to two way traffic. Wellington Rd northbound and Sunset Drive southbound will be closed during phase 2. To continue onto Sunset Drive from St. Thomas you will have to detour through Stanley Street to Old Talbot Hill. For drivers on Sunset Drive southbound looking to head west, you will have to head up Old Talbot Hill to Stanley and back down Talbot Hill. The Wellington Rd. detour will remain the same, and can be accessed by using St. George St.
David Jackson Manager of Capital Works says that phase two means that the Roundabout is nearing completion.
Jackson says that phase two will last for 1 month. The final phase of the project will consist of nightly closures while the top coat of asphalt is laid down.
