Downtown Revitalization Project

Construction Update - week of July 5, 2021

Please be advised the following will be undertaken the week of July 5:

  • This week, crews will be putting up forms for the concrete at the entrances on the east side and the curb and gutter at Limit Ave. 
  • Gravelling will take place at the same time, depending on weather.  
  • Pouring will take place tomorrow with the second pour at the end of the week. 
  • Landscaping will resume on Wednesday. 
Everything is weather dependent and with a wet forecast, this schedule could change.

There are no road closures. One entrance at the Shell is closed but a  temporary entrance has been constructed. The main entrance to the parking lot at the BigWay is closed but access is straight from Osler Ave.

Please watch the Town's social media and website for updates.

Temporary Traffic Accommodation Strategy

The work being undertaken on Railway St. will necessarily require road closures and alternative routes. A Traffic Accommodation Strategy has been developed and includes the following highlights:

  • Road closures will be split up into multiple phases along Railway St, starting from Laut Ave. and moving north to Limit Ave. This will include closures of the side avenues from Railway St to the alley way as well.
  • Each phase will allow for pedestrian access to all businesses and residences.
  • All businesses will be provided vehicular access for deliveries.
  • Parking will be restricted throughout the duration of the project.
  • During the first two phases of construction, access to Railway St will only be available via Limit Ave until construction is completed between Laut Ave and Ross St.
