The intersection at Preston Avenue South and Louise Street is going to be closed all weekend. The city says crews will be replacing a catch basin. Lane and parking restrictions will be in place at various locations along Preston between Adelaide Street East and East Drive. If everything goes according to schedule, the closure will end Sunday evening. Road users are encouraged to reroute their commute to avoid the area.
