Kenora residents are advised that they may run into short traffic delays. The City of Kenora says that crews are working on multiple projects on local roads and bridges.

Beginning today, traffic will be reduced to one lane on:
- Parson Street bridge in Norman, as crews replace expansion joint seals,
- Keewatin Channel bridge (Highway 17 West to Keewatin), as crews complete bridge cleaning and waterproofing,
- Cameron Bay bridge (Highway 17 West to Keewatin), as crews complete bridge cleaning and waterproofing,
- Valley Drive, as crews complete asphalt crack sealing.

These delays are expected to continue until Thursday.

The Bay Street Overpass Bridge on Highway 17 West in Keewatin will also be reduced to one lane today. Traffic will be controlled with traffic signal lights. Residents can also expect delays on Bay Street under the bridge, as that road will also be reduced to one lane. The city says that Moncrief construction will be performing repairs and rehabilitation works, that are expected to continue until June 25. 

The city thanks the public for their patience and cooperation as the maintenance work is completed. The city notes that the above maintenance may change depending on weather, as the projects cannot be completed in wet or raining conditions.
