Construction work is scheduled to begin on Monday on the Uptown Waterloo Streetscape Project.

The city of Waterloo is installing new bike lanes, benches, and garbage cans along with some landscaping between Central and Erb Streets.

They are also warning motorists of potential lane closures during the work.

Officials say they will try to keep traffic moving through uptown but there is a possibility traffic will be diverted and reduced to one lane.

The city says they plan to stop work every day by 5 p.m. and fully open the road.

The construction project is expected to take six to eight weeks.
