Downtown Loop Construction

The Downtown Loop project for the Rapid Transit System has begun in the core, and construction impacts Ridout Street and the surrounding area. There is a road closure from just north of Fullarton St. to the corner of Ridout St. and Queens Ave. While there is a road closure, Eldon House remains open and accessible via our main gate, located on Ridout and Fullerton. The included map shows the path of construction.  This is a map of the downtown core indicating road closures along Ridout Street North, as well as municipal parking lots.

Various surrounding parking lots are accessible, and the City of London is offering discounts on municipal lots using the Honk app. The passcode ‘CORE’ will allow visitors to access free parking for two hours in designated lots.

More information on the construction, as well as updates and contact information can be found here:
