  • Each monitoring point installation process takes anywhere from one hour up to a few days, depending on the type of installation.

Traffic and Pedestrian Details

  • Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the works. Some portions of sidewalk may need to be closed during work hours, in which cases pedestrians will be directed through alternative routes.
  • Some installation sites may be located on the edge of the curb or roadway, in which case there would be protection erected around the worksite with a minimum of 1.5m for pedestrians maintained at all times.
  • Installations near intersections will have a Paid Duty Office on site.
  • During the day, traffic lanes may be reduced. Short term lane closures will allow the crews to perform their work safely. Some lane closures may be left in place overnight.
  • Parking spaces may be impacted depending on the location of the installation. Protection is set-up around the work area, which may require a few spots at a time.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites
