New Payne Road in Scarborough Opens Monday

Scarborough – The Dunstan’s Corner construction project in Scarborough moves closer to completion on Monday, June 17th with the opening of the new Payne Road.

This $2.8 million project is located at the intersection of Route 1 with Payne Road, Broadturn Road and Pine Point Road. Work being performed includes pavement overlay on Route 1, Pine Point Road and Broadturn Road.

Payne Road has been reconstructed and relocated northerly of the existing intersection of Route 1. Work has included excavation, a new “sub-base” of the roadway, paving, drainage and curb improvements, traffic signal upgrades as well as water main replacements and other safety improvements.

While the Payne Road will be open and accessible, it is recommended motorists use Route 1 and Haigis Parkway, as these improvements and the ones recently accomplished at the Route 1/Haigis Parkway intersection have been designed to make it easier and more efficient, rather than the more rural section of the Payne Road.

Work continues in and around Dunstin’s Corner, so travelers are advised to continue using caution and allow for extra time when passing through this area.

It is anticipated all work will be completed by the end of July.
