The next step in the Weber Street Reconstruction Project in Waterloo gets underway this week.
Culvert replacement on Cedar Creek between Albert Street and Belcan Place will start up Monday, with officials saying a portion of Weber will have to be completely shut down to allow the work to be completed.
For the next seven weeks, motorists won't be able to travel along Weber from Dutton Drive through to Belcan Place.
The City of Waterloo's water main project on Albert Street will also take place during the next month and a half.
This is all part of the Weber Street Road Reconstruction Project aimed at improving Weber Street and it's underground infrastructure. This includes the replacement of water main, storm and sanitary sewers, as well as new cycling infrastructure, traffic signal replacement, and street lighting upgrades.
Next year, crews will focus on Weber Street from Parkside Drive to Northfield Drive during the 2023 construction season.
Work along Weber has been underway since April 19th, the previous northbound lane closure on Weber from Blythwood Road to Belcan Place will wrap up this week before the new work begins.
