Two northbound lanes on Banff Avenue are closed to vehicle traffic from Buffalo Street to Caribou Street. The east sidewalk and traffic lanes are also closed to pedestrian traffic from the mid block crossing to Caribou street. The closure is effective immediately until further notice.
West side pedestrian movements and southbound vehicular traffic are not affected.
The closure is to address a potential public safety hazard regarding the stability and condition of a portion of the west brick wall of the Mount Royal Hotel. It is expected that these parts of the building will be stabilized in the short term, and pedestrian and vehicular travel will be restored as quickly as possible.
