Construction on the city’s downtown revitalization project means Chipman Street from First Street South to Second Street South will be closed to traffic as of July 10.

“This closure impacts the city transit main depot which will be relocated to Matheson Street South directly in front of the Market Square plaza (Chip Truck area),” a city news release reads. “The parking meter located directly in front will be covered and this will become the city transit stop for Market Square temporarily during this closure.”

The city covered parking metres on Matheson Street to accommodate increased traffic flow, the city said.

The city received suggestions from residents that the Matheson Street and Second Street South traffic lights should be changed, the city said, which engineers reviewed but determined wouldn’t be feasible.

“The end result of this project will be a beautiful enhancement to our downtown,” the city said.

First Street South from Matheson Street to Chipman Street is already closed to traffic. The Husky on the corner of First Street South and Chipman Street is also temporarily closed.

Eighth Street South will also be closed July 10 until July 12 at 6 p.m. for sewer and water infrastructure upgrades.

City to buy radar signs

The city plans to buy two radar road signs that track and display vehicle speeds as drivers zip by as a means of reducing speeding and calming traffic on Kenora streets.

“Although educational in nature, speed radar signs are effective at bringing motorists’ attention to the speeds they are driving,” a council committee report prepared by operations and infrastructure manager Jeff Hawley reads. “Evidence exists that a significant number of motorists are correcting their speed when these devices are used.”

The city will allocate up to $10,000 from its 2019 road reserves to buy the signs at the regular July 16 council meeting.

The signs will also collect data. The signs the city is looking at can be mounted on existing or temporary poles and be relocated because they won’t be installed permanently.
