UPDATE May 26, 2021:

The steel plates are expected to be put in place on May 26, 2021 and remain for a period of about one month to protect the road way as site preparation continues.

Nov 10, 2020:

The steel road plates that have been in place on Veterans Memorial Parkway at Allandale Road are expected to be removed this week.

These plates have been protecting the road surface during the extensive work by the original owner to prepare the Allandale District site for sale and development. 

*Please note that plates will be required again as the new owners of lots within the Allandale District begin to develop their lands.
