About this project

The City is reconstructing English Street from Dundas Street to Princess Avenue and Lorne Avenue from English Street to approximately 100 metres east of the intersection to replace and improve the quality and reliability of water, sewer and road infrastructure.

This project will include:

    • Replacement of watermain and water services
    • Replacement of sanitary sewers
    • Partial replacement of existing sewer private drain connections
    • Storm sewer and road drainage improvements including installing curb-inlet catchbasins and implementing new stormwater management features
    • New asphalt road surface, concrete curb & gutter, and concrete sidewalks
    • Implementing dedicated bicycle lanes on English Street between Dundas Street and Queens Avenue
    • Reconfiguring the Queens Avenue at English Street intersection to incorporate safety improvements
    • Narrowing the road asphalt width from Queens Avenue to Princess Avenue as a measure to reduce traffic speeds; maintaining two-way traffic and on-street parking
    • Implementing heritage style street lighting enhancements, maintaining green space boulevards wherever possible, and incorporating heritage features such as stamped street names in the concrete sidewalks and heritage style street name signs.
    • Coordinating and incorporating elements of the Lorne Avenue Park Development into the English Street construction project

Construction started in spring 2021 and has been extended into the spring of 2022. During the fall of 2021, the contractor will be restoring all removed surfaces (roadway, sidewalks, driveways) to allow for winter maintenance, and resume work in early 2022.
