Traffic delays expected in Summerside

Published on August 28, 2014

SUMMERSIDE – Delays of up to 20 minutes can be expected for motorists travelling through constructions zones in the city.

A release from the City of Summerside Thursday afternoon advised the traveling public that the delays could be expected in the areas of Water Street East (from Bay Avenue to Gillespie Avenue); Central Street (from Willow Avenue to Maple Avenue, and from Pope Road to Walker Avenue); and Lefurgey Avenue.

Traffic flow is often down to one lane in these construction zones, so if motorists are unable to avoid these areas, the city says they should be prepared for significant delays, sometimes of up to 20 minutes.
