Khenipsen Road Construction
November 20, 2020
Due to safety concerns, construction to widen a portion of Khenipsen Road begins on Monday, November 23. Construction will last approximately 2 weeks (weather permitting). Motorists should expect delays between 8am to 4pm of 30 minutes for a temporary complete road closure. Construction will pause briefly every half-hour to allow traffic to pass through.
Construction is taking place on the north-side of the road, near 1138 Khenipsen. The project includes removing approx 1.5 metre of the rock face to widen the existing road, relocating the concrete barriers on the south-side, and resurfacing the road.
