Front Street (Re)Construction

The Build Belleville downtown reconstruction is moving right along. The contractor, Corcoran Excavating Ltd., has been working as fast as humanly possible to finish Phase One before the snow flies. They have made great progress, and are now starting to do the finishing work on the area between Victoria Avenue and the upper bridge.

A little pothole?

The Build Belleville coordinator, Elisha Purchase, has very kindly supplied a map showing which areas of Front Street will be closed to vehicle traffic while the crews race to pave the surface and pour the sidewalks. The upper entrance to the Riverside parking lot (the one across from the Empire Theatre) will be closed during this time; the only access to the parking lot will be from Bridge Street (beside the TD Bank) and the lower Front Street entrance (beside Essenzia Eyewear). And remember: there is four-hour FREE PARKING in the North Riverside lot (the area is well-marked, but is essentially the area of the lot stretching from behind Barrett’s Office Supplies to the north entrance).
