In 2018, the one-way section of Church St. from King St. to Niagara St. will be rebuilt and converted to two-way traffic. Once construction is completed, Church St. will be converted to two-way traffic from Niagara St. to Court St.
A portion of Niagara St. will also be rehabilitated and will remain as one-way. A portion of Geneva St. will be reconstructed and remain as two-way.
In 2019, this road reconstruction project will remove Niagara St. from the five-point intersection where St. Paul St. meets Geneva St., Queenston St. and Niagara St., and realign it with Centre St.
At the same time, portions of St. Paul St., Queenston St. and Geneva St. adjacent to the intersection will be reconstructed. Queenston St. will be converted to two-way traffic.

Businesses will remain open during construction. Temporary sidewalk closures may happen from time-to-time, but pedestrian access to business will be maintained at all times.
Church St., Geneva St. and Niagara St. will be kept open to through traffic. However, there will be temporary lane restrictions which will result in delays. Residents can avoid delays by using alternate routes.
During road reconstruction, on-street parking on Niagara St. may be temporarily unavailable at times. On-street parking will still be available on Niagara St. in the area of Church St.
