Temporary Road Closure in Belgrave this Saturday for 150th Parade

Thursday June 29th, 2017

RE: East Wawanosh Event and Parade road closures and detours.           

Belgrave Residents on Jordan Drive and Owen Street – Please be advised that effective June 30th, Jordan Drive will be closed from the North access to the ball park entrance. Barricades will be placed at these locations. Residents along Jordan Drive will need to use the Owen Street access off of London Rd to access Jordan Drive from June 30th through July 2nd.     The July 1st parade will follow along Jordan Drive, and Owen Street and will disband at the London Rd intersection. The parade will begin at 11am. On Sunday July 2nd, a “Moonlight Walk” will take place along Jordan Drive to the crescent and back to the community centre, beginning at 7:30pm. The above mentioned street closure will remain in effect during the Moonlight Walk.

Residents are responsible for keeping the street clear of parked cars. The travelled portion of the roadway needs to be clear for emergency vehicles should they be necessary. Parking may occur on one side of the road where it is wide enough for vehicles to safely be off the road.  Residents are also reminded that if you do not want any unwanted vehicles parked on your property, it is your responsibility to mark your area with No Parking signs. 

London Road and Belgrave Road residents- Please be advised that London Rd will be closed between Belfast Rd and Nature Centre Rd and Belgrave Rd will be closed from London Rd to Currie Line on July 1st from 10am-1pm. This is to provide a traffic free zone for the East Wawanosh parade July 1st. Parade traffic (floats and observers) will be allowed into Belgrave until 10:45am.

There will be parking at the North end of the village (behind the Co Op) and at the South end (lot at London Rd and Parker Drive).

The parade route will follow Belgrave Rd (across from Euro Parts), down into the village, heading South on Queen Street to Jordon Drive, continuing onto Owen Street and then concluding at the intersection of London Rd and Owen Street.

We do hope that the inconvenience is minimal and you will be able to enjoy and celebrate with us June 30th – July 2nd.

Please contact Jamie McCallum @ 519 357 5642 or Matt Beck @ 519 590 7963 for inquiries about the road closures and Marvin Cook @ 519 525 2107 for inquiries about the parade route.

Thank you for your understanding.

The East Wawanosh 150th Committee
