The province has started work to replace and widen the existing stream culvert at Andrews Pond on Route 2 - St. Peters Road.
As referenced in a public notice by the Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy Department, a temporary diversion road will be constructed to allow traffic to pass through the site while this work is being completed.
The first phase of this project is expected to be underway until mid-December.
Drivers should expect additional delays due to this work and are encouraged to choose alternate routes.
The sidewalk and trail will be closed to pedestrians during construction.
The public is asked to reduce speed, obey signs and traffic control personnel and be prepared to stop. For provincial alerts, visit princeedwardisland.ca/alerts.
