Motorists travelling on Highway 40 should be prepared for short delays, as traffic is reduced to one lane at Township Road 581A. Speed has been reduced to 50 km/h in the area, and temporary signals are alternating traffic.

Due to the damage to the road and the substantial repairs needed, the lane closure is expected to remain in place for several months. Construction will include building a retaining wall, landslide excavation and repaving.

Motorists should allow extra time for travel, obey all traffic signs and signals and watch for highway workers on the road.
