Traffic around universities to be adjusted for move-in days


With the main move-in days for students at Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo less than a week away, the City has released the street closures that will come into effect over Labour Day weekend.

From Sept. 1-3, Lester Street will be restricted to one-way traffic between Seagram Drive and Columbia Street West, with no access to the street from either Columbia or University Avenue. On those three days, vehicles will also not be able to turn left onto Columbia or University from Lester. Through traffic from Lester across University will also be prohibited on Sept. 1, 2 and 3.

On Sept. 2 and 3, Spruce Street will be one-way between Hickory Street West and Columbia. There will also be no access from Columbia onto Spruce.

These re-directions will be in effect on dates listed between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
