Peterborough, ON – Construction will start on the Peterborough Memorial Centre arena pad renovation project at 151 Lansdowne St. W. on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

Portions of the parking lot will be closed with restricted access and there will be heavy equipment operating in the area with associated noise that it may cause. The Lock Street entrance to the south parking lot will be closed for the duration of the project.

The contractor will be working 12-hour shifts of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the project, with the potential for some elevated noise during for the first two to four weeks of the project – Saturday, June 1 through Saturday, June 30. The expectation is that Sunday work would not be required after the first four weeks. The project is estimated to be completed in early October.

Peterborough Memorial Centre arena pad activities have been relocated to other community arena facilities. The Baker Tilly Box Office at the PMC will continue to be open for ticket sales Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Peterborough Farmers’ Market continues in the parking lot on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Parking can be accessed from entrances on Roger Neilson Way.

Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame will maintain its standard operating hours with the Hall of Fame open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon. Access will be from the north side of the facility.

The Peterborough Petes OHL team intends to have its offices at the PMC open during regular business hours; however, due to the construction project, the Petes encourage patrons to contact the office before visiting the facility as temporary closures may occur.
