Update: Notification of Closure on Outer Circle, near Central Utilities Plant and drop off area for HMALC

Due to unexpected conditions, Outer Circle Road across from the Central Utilities Plant (CUP) continues to have a section closed to traffic, resulting in single-lane traffic. 

This closure is to allow for repairs to underground utilities tunnel for project UTM2020-21-14 CUP Tunnel Repairs.


The closure will result in one-way traffic will be controlled via traffic lights, but please expect delays.

  • A small segment of Outer Circle Road located across from the CUP will be closed.  A demarcated detour for one-way traffic, controlled by traffic lights, has been created through the drop-off lane in front of the Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre (HMALC) for both vehicles and pedestrians.

Please refer to the attached drawing showing the detour and revised pedestrian route.  Signs and traffic lights will be used to safely manage traffic through the detour in this area. 

In case of high-volume traffic, flag personnel will be present to facilitate efficient traffic flow.  Some traffic delays may be expected.

Safety is our foremost concern.  During this construction period, campus users and visitors are encouraged to enter and exit campus through either the Main entrance to Mississauga Road, or the South Entrance at Collegeway and Mississauga Road.
