Construction is starting on the Peterborough Memorial Centre arena pad renovation project at 151 Lansdowne St. W. on Saturday, June 1st and is expected to be completed by late October.
Portions of the parking lot will be closed with restricted access and there will be heavy equipment operating in the area with associated noise that it may cause. The Lock Street entrance to the south parking lot will be closed for the duration of the project.
The contractor will be working 12-hour shifts of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the project, with the potential for some elevated noise during for the first two to four weeks of the project. The expectation is that Sunday work would not be required after the first four weeks.
