Highway 417 will fully close in both directions between Carling and Bronson Avenues from 8 p.m. today, Thursday, July 2, until 6 a.m. on Monday, July 6. Bronson will be part of the detour route for eastbound motorists, as they will exit at the Carling/Kirkwood offramp, travel along Carling and then north on Bronson to Chamberlain to re-access the highway.
While westbound motorists will also be detoured at Bronson, the detour route is via Catherine/Raymond, north of our neighbourhood, to Booth St. Regardless, increased congestion is expected in our vicinity.
Orangeville will also be closed west of our neighbourhood, between Rochester and Booth Streets.
