NEWS RELEASE
TOWN OF INNISFIL
*************************
The Town of Innisfil has received notification from Fermar Paving Ltd., the contractor completing the Highway 400 and 89 interchange, that demolition of the existing bridge on Highway 89 will occur on Oct. 1 beginning at 8 p.m., which will result in a closure of both Highway 400 and a portion of Highway 89.

This is an Ontario Ministry of Transportation project for the replacement of the bridge to improve the interchange and traffic flow.

The work will begin at 8 p.m. Oct. 1 and be completed by 8 a.m. Oct. 2.

Traffic control personnel will block all six lanes of Highway 400 to redirect traffic over to the northbound and southbound off-ramps. All vehicles will exit at the off-ramps to the intersections where paid-duty officers will assist vehicles to cross the intersections to the adjacent on-ramps to get back on the highway.

Additionally, Highway 89 will be closed between the two intersections (overtop of Highway 400). Signage will be placed on the surrounding sideroads to guide traffic to bypass the Highway 89 bridge to the bridges at 4th Line and 13th Line. Route detour signs will be in place.
