Effective this week, York Blvd/Wilson Street between Bay St. N. and Ferguson Ave. N. will be converted to two-way traffic. Park Street between York and Cannon will also be converted to two-way.
Sections of York/Wilson and Park Street being converted to two-way
The City issued a press release calling on drivers to "exercise caution while driving through this area and be aware of new signs and pavement markings indicating the flow of traffic. Please also watch for pedestrians."
Beyond Ferguson, Wilson Street is slated for two-way conversion as far as Victoria Ave. N. in the summer of 2011.
This change comes as part of the York Blvd Streetscape Master Plan renovations, which began in May. In addition to two-way conversion, the renovation includes sidewalk widening, bicycle lanes and other streetscaping and detailing to make the stretch more attractive to pedestrians.
The work also coincides with the Central Library/Farmers' Market renovation, which is scheduled for completion in mid-December, with the Farmers' Market moving back in January.
