Continued construction at the Health Sciences Centre will detour traffic this weekend.

As of 6 p.m. tonight, William Avenue will be closed to vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists at Sherbrook Street. Local traffic can still access HSC and the William Avenue parkade from the west, but will not be able to access them from Sherbrook Street.

Vehicles trying to access the HSC emergency departments can detour via McDermot Avenue (see map).

Transit Routes 12 William and 33 Maples will be rerouted via William, Tecumseh, McDermot, Sherbrook and William in both directions during the street closure.

The affected roadways will reopen by 6 a.m. on Monday.
