Road Construction

Safety around construction sites

Traffic safety around construction sites

In Waterloo, city staff maintains over 800 kilometres of roadway and sets up thousands of construction zones for the purpose of repairing and paving roads, utility work, capital projects and rehabilitation.

Our road crews are out daily making repairs to keep everyone safe. Help them stay safe by obeying the signs. You may not be saving time but you are saving lives.

Tips for driving through construction zones:

  • Slow down, drive at the posted speed limit and be aware of construction zones.
  • Watch for signs. Signs contain essential information about traffic conditions, road closures and detours ahead.
  • Watch for trucks turning and backing up.

Living through construction is never easy. In order to help you plan your trips around the construction in the city, sign up for our road, trail and sidewalk closures alerts or download our Pingstreet app, for road closure information.
