This weekend, the James Mountain Road escarpment access (West 5th Street/James Street South) will be closed to accommodate ongoing construction as part of the West 5th Street project. The closure is required so crews can safely complete retaining wall work along the escarpment access.

The access will be closed on Saturday, May 23rd and Sunday, May 24th between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

As a result, routes 21 UPPER KENILWORTH, 33 SANATORIUM and 35 COLLEGE will be on detour during these times.
