Paving & Concrete

One of the lanes will terminate as a left turn lane from Union St. onto St. Mary’s St. (towards the Westmorland St. Bridge) and the other will continue west on Union St. This upgrade will also enable the use of an advanced left turn arrow for traffic travelling eastbound on Union St. turning left onto Cliffe St. These upgrades are anticipated to decrease travel delays through the intersection considerably during peak periods

Hanwell - This project will span from Osmond Ln. to Golf Greens Ln. and include a sidewalk extension.

King Street Lay-by: King Street transit lay-bys are to undergo replacement due to their deteriorated condition. The concrete curb and bus lay-bys infrastructure is in poor condition, posing trip hazards for passengers entering and exiting the buses which can no longer be maintained with localized patches and repairs. The work includes the southern portions of curb along King Street located immediately in front of Kings Place, extending from York Street to Carleton Street; the work also includes the concrete pads for bus lay-bys. Pedestrians will retain full access to the sidewalk and to Kings Place.
