Tis the season for road construction once again, and that was evidenced by the sight at the intersection of 4th Street and Kensington Avenue on Wednesday.
Traffic headed over the train overpass at Highway 39 East was backed up as it had to be filtered through on one lane, directed by work-zone flaggers.
"They (crews) were out repairing some broken pavement and what not, that's all been patched up and it's ready to roll," shared Steve Shaheen with the Ministry of Highways.
"This is the time of year that we see the repairs getting underway across the province. Filling potholes with base materials, blading and asphalt patching and those types of things. Typically what happens is you get the roadbeds that are pretty saturated over the winter months, then as soon as you get that thaw-freeze cycle, you see some of the breaks, cracks and potholes in the surface."
He added that motorists should keep an eye out for signage as they travel, as crews may be in various places doing odd job repairs.
