To improve traffic flow during construction, the Region is temporarily designating Bridgeport, from King to Regina, for two-way traffic.

The following message is sent on behalf of the Region of Waterloo:

The Region will be moving forward with the temporary 2-way detour on Bridgeport Road between King Street and Regina Street. The work is planned to be completed on Thursday and Friday this week [May 10-11] with the conversion of traffic in place for the weekend.

This traffic conversion will provide another travel option for motorists during Stage 1 work and is intended to be place throughout the duration of the project . You will see the south lane of traffic converted to an eastbound travel lane, and temporary signals installed at the King-Bridgeport and Regina-Bridgeport intersections to accommodate this temporary change of direction.

The signal timing at the Regina-Bridgeport and Regina-Erb intersections have been lengthened to allow more vehicles to turn during peak hours, and keep traffic moving through the intersections during this phase of construction.
