Richmond Street has reopened to traffic.
Over the next few weeks, crews will remain on site to complete miscellaneous work, which will require intermittent lane reductions.
The new road design features additional left-turn lanes along this section of Richmond Street, as well as a new centre-median to enhance safety and accommodate existing and future travel demand at this busy intersection.
As part of the project, active transportation improvements were added, including concrete sidewalks and in-boulevard asphalt bike paths. New streetscape elements, street lighting and traffic signals will also be installed.
Thank you for your patience while this important work was underway.

What to expect in 2024
Phase 2 of the project is anticipated to begin in the spring along Fanshawe Park Road between both east and west legs of North Centre Road.
The work in 2024 will add additional through lanes on Fanshawe Park Road, new concrete sidewalks, upgrades to underground infrastructure and enhancements to in-boulevard asphalt bike paths.
All businesses will remain open and accessible during construction. Access to Masonville Mall and other commercial and residential areas will be maintained as well as possible throughout construction.
About the project
Construction for the Fanshawe Park Road and Richmond Street Intersection Improvements project aims to enhance safety and comfort for all road users and help accommodate existing and future traffic demand, while upgrading and replacing aging underground infrastructure. The project will also add active transportation improvements, including asphalt in-boulevard bike paths and new concrete sidewalks.
The project will be constructed in stages to minimize inconveniences and maximize access through the area during construction. Construction is planned in 2023 for the first phase of the project and in 2024 for phase two along Fanshawe Park Road.
This project is one of London’s top ten projects to be constructed this year across the city.
