This map shows the detour route, effective Monday, Aug. 14 and Tuesday, Aug. 15, in Cumberland.

Crews repaving Cumberland’s Dunsmuir Avenue Monday and Tuesday

  • Aug. 13, 2017 8:30 a.m.

Dunsmuir Avenue will be closed from 1st Street to Egremont Street for paving on Aug. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Aug. 15 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A total length of 150 metres of Dunsmuir Avenue will be resurfaced and repaved, which will address winter road damage. Work is weather-dependent.

Traffic can detour around the closure by using Derwent Avenue, which is accessible from Sutton Avenue on the east side, and 1st Street on the west side. Please use caution when taking this detour, which goes past the children’s playground at No. 6 Mine Park. See attached map for details.

Residents are asked to refrain from parking on this section of Dunsmuir Avenue on Aug. 14 and 15. The parking lots at the Cultural Centre and Recreation Centre will be open. Pedestrians are asked to use the crossings at Egremont Street and 1st Street, rather than crossing mid-block. Please pay attention to road and sidewalk signage for your safety.
