The Town of Hampstead will close the south lane of Fleet Road direction east between Queen Mary Road and Minden Street in Hampstead in order to replace a stone retainer wall. This partial closure begins Tuesday, October 15 and is expected to be completed by October 26, barring any unforeseen delays due to poor weather and other similar obstacles.

The partial road closure will be in effect Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm in order to lessen the impact on rush hour traffic. The sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians from Oct. 15-26 at all times until the work is completed.

This work will impact commuters who use Fleet to access Decarie Blvd. outside of rush hour. Although Hampstead does not anticipate traffic problems, the town is encouraging commuters to use alternate routes to avoid delays.

The closure of Fleet is required to enable contractors to replace the stone retainer wall and plant vegetation efficiently and in a timely fashion that reduces the impact for commuters.
