Update: June 21 – Paving work is now complete.  Thank you to all our customers for your patience during the construction!

Update: June 20 – Gate 1 is now OPEN. Paving work continues around Gate 1 so please use caution when entering and exiting the scale.

Greenwood Paving will be on-site Tuesday, June 18 to begin paving repairs to Gate 1.  We anticipate the closure of Gate 1 during this process. The exact date/time and duration are unknown and weather dependent.

When Gate 1 is closed, all traffic will enter through Gate 2. Traffic will travel behind the Centre’s garage, compost and recycling buildings and loop around the public drop off bins adjacent to the scale house.  Scale traffic will be one way only.

Traffic will exit off the scale and when leaving the facility, proceed to the front of our administration building, through the employee parking lot and exit Gate 2.  Please take extreme caution when exiting the site as it is a pedestrian area. 

We expect longer than normal wait times at the scale during the paving project and increased congestion on-site. Any loads that can be delayed until another time would be appreciated.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this time.
