Closure of Charters Road for Concrete Curb Installation March 18-March 25, 2024

Thursday, March 14, 2024  – The District is advising the public of a temporary closure of Charters Road, scheduled for next week to facilitate the installation of concrete curbs between Golledge and the “Throup Creek dip”. This closure, essential for infrastructure enhancement, aims to ensure safer and more durable roadways for our community.

This closure, occurring March 18th to 25th, has been strategically coordinated to occur during spring break for School District 62 and minimize disruption to residents. While Charters Road will be closed to through traffic from Monday afternoon until the end of the day Friday, access for local traffic will be maintained.

During this time, vehicle access into driveways will be temporarily blocked for three days following the pouring of curbs, allowing the concrete to set and gain sufficient strength. Residents directly affected by this closure will receive additional notices outlining specific details and accommodations for driveway access.

“I greatly appreciate the efforts of our contractor, Hazelwood Construction, in adapting to minimize disruption to residents whenever possible,” says Interim CAO Raechel Gray. “The District is making significant investments to respond to what we continually hear is the top concern affecting residents, our transportation network.”

We encourage residents to plan their routes accordingly, allow additional time for travel and utilize alternative routes during this period.”

“Construction is expected throughout the community as we implement the Transportation Master Plan, which while inconvenient, is hopefully something we can also celebrate,” adds Gray.
