Carling and Kirkwood (North) Intersection Redesign

Construction started Autumn 2021.

(Last updated:  August 2021)  Purpose of redesign is to prevent traffic using Carling/Kirkwood exit from Queensway west-bound from making a left turn south onto Kirkwood.  A median will be installed so that traffic exiting the Queensway must travel west to Saigon Court in order to use Carling east-bound to turn onto Kirkwood south.  Saigon Court will be widened to accommodate new traffic.

As part of this redesign,  a traffic light is being installed at the Saigon/Carling east-bound intersection.
