Revised road closures for Remembrance Day parade this weekend
Due to ice and snow, the routing for this weekend’s Remembrance Day parade, set for Friday, Nov. 11, has changed.
The parade will now begin on Mill St. adjacent to Kerry Park at 10:40 a.m., eventually entering City Park via Abbott Street. To ensure the safety of participants as they gather, Mill St. will be closed between the laneway behind Kelly O’Bryan’s and Bernard Ave. beginning at 7:30 a.m. At 10:15 a.m., the section of Bernard Ave. adjacent to Kerry Park and Abbott St. between Bernard and Lawrence Aves. will close to vehicle traffic to allow parade participants to pass.
Following the conclusion of the memorial ceremony at the City Park cenotaph, at approximately 11:30 a.m., parade participants will march back toward City Hall along Lawrence Ave. and Water St. As a result, from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Lawrence Ave. will be closed between Abbott St. and Water St., and Water St. will be closed between Lawrence Ave. and the Queensway traffic circle. RCMP and traffic control personnel will be stationed along the parade route to hold traffic at cross streets while the participants pass. Please note that the timing of all closures is approximate.
From 7 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., parking will also be restricted along the parade route. All parking restrictions and road closures are scheduled to conclude by 1 p.m.
