About this project

The City of London and AECOM Canada Ltd. are starting the detailed design of the Mud Creek Phase 2 works which generally includes approximately 800 linear metres of natural channel design from the CN Rail embankment northerly to Oxford Street and the construction of a new Oxford Street culvert.

The main purpose of this City-led project is to alleviate existing and future flooding concerns identified in the Mud Creek Subwatershed Environmental Assessment. This is the complete design of the remaining City led infrastructure components for the Mud Creek works as identified within the completed environmental assessment (EA). This “Phase 2” assignment includes both Phase 2 and Phase 3 outlined within the completed EA. The project will serve to create an improved naturalized and stable channel corridor to enhance the ecological environment for wildlife; along with new recreational pathways connections and naturalized landscaping to enhance walkability and the public amenity space.

    The channel and slope reconstruction will generally extend from the CN Rail embankment northerly to Oxford Street, along with a new culvert crossing Oxford Street to accommodate the upstream tributary areas that collect and flow into Mud Creek. The channel will be lowered and regraded to increase flow conveyance capacity within the channel. This project will be extensive with significant restorations, tree plantings, multiple habitat features and a recreational multiuse pathway. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of December 2022 with plantings to take place in Spring of 2023.
