A major construction project is about to get underway in Stratford and it could impact the way you get around the city.

Beginning Monday, St.Vincent Street, from the north leg of Patricia Road to the north leg of Redford Crescent, will be closed off to through traffic.

The closure is expected to stay in place until the end of August with only local traffic getting through.

This is the second phase of the major reconstruction project being done on St.Vincent Street and it will include water main repairs.

Phase two is anticipated to cost the city just over $1 million to carry out.
