The section of Rice Rd. (Regional Rd. 54), from Hwy. 20 to 200 metres north of Merritt Rd. is scheduled for reconstruction in 2019.
Rice Rd. will be reconstructed to an urban cross section (curb and gutter) on the west side. The east side will remain as a rural cross section with roadside ditches. Two 3.5 metre wide through lanes (one in each direction) will be constructed, as well as left turn lanes at intersections.
The project will also include construction of traffic signals at Port Robinson Rd. and construction of storm sewers.
Work is set to be complete by fall 2019. Work will include:

Businesses remain open
Temporary sidewalk and driveway closures may happen from time-to-time, but pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times.
Expected traffic delays
Traffic delays are expected during this project.

Full daily closures anticipated mid-August (two days and open at night) for placement of top asphalt.
