Motorists can continue to travel northbound or southbound on Lagimodiere Boulevard through the intersection at Fermor Avenue; however, traffic will be limited to one lane in either direction, and access to eastbound and westbound Fermor Avenue will be restricted to right turns only.

The restrictions will remain in place until 9 p.m. on Sunday, August 23.
