A detour will be in place and the road will reopen on the weekends.

The pipe, called the Clover Forcemain, will run along Dallas Road from Clover Point to Ogden Point, where it will connect to the Victoria cross-harbour undersea pipe.

Construction began in October, 2018 and is expected to take about two years to complete.

As of April, 2019, over 50 per cent — or 1.6 km — of the pipe has been installed. All construction activities for the Clover Forcemain are anticipated to be complete by summer 2020.

Following the pipe installation, the road will be re-paved. Clover Point Park has been re-seeded.
