The city is warning drivers to expect delays in the vicinity of Walterdale Bridge this week.

Walterdale Hill Road from Saskatchewan Drive to Queen Elizabeth Park Road will be reduced to one lane, starting 9 a.m. Monday.

The reduction, which will remain in place through to Thursday, will allow EPCOR workers to complete utility work related to the construction of the new Walterdale Bridge.

Drivers wishing to avoid delays are recommended to try detouring via Queen Elizabeth Park Road or Scona Road.
