EC Row Ramp Closing

The E.C. Row eastbound off-ramp onto Huron Church Rd. is set for a two-month closure starting April 1 as construction continues on the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway.

Cindy Prince, communications manager for the Parkway Infrastructure Constructors, says workers are to build a new ramp connecting a newly built portion of the E.C. Row.

“Now that elevation of the new portion of the E.C. Row is different than the elevation of the existing E.C Row and so, what we have to do is rebuild that off-ramp so it will now connect,” says Prince. “As much of the preliminary work as possible has been completed without closing the ramp but, now they’re at the stage they can only continue to work in a safe manner if the ramp is closed.”

A detour route will be set up for truck traffic but local drivers are expected to find the best route for themselves to get where they need to go.
