Background

This project is anticipated to be approved and funded as part of the City’s Regional Street Renewals program in the 2019 Capital Budget. The anticipated budget for this project is $5,600,00.00. Construction is scheduled for 2019.The Regional Street Renewal Program includes the renewal and reconstruction of the City’s regional streets, sidewalks, and recreational walkways/paths. The purpose of this program is to maintain the level of service, structural integrity and readability of the transportation network.

This project includes the reconstruction of York Avenue from Osborne Street to Memorial Boulevard, reconstruction of Memorial Boulevard from York Avenue to St. Mary Avenue and the rehabilitation of Memorial Boulevard from St. Mary Avenue to Portage Avenue and the rehabilitation of Colony Street from Portage Avenue to Ellice Avenue.

The pavement reconstructions will include the replacement of the concrete pavement, curbs and sidewalks. The pavement rehabilitations will include concrete spot repairs to the road, asphalt resurfacing, curb repairs and sidewalk repairs and renewals. The reconstruction of Memorial Boulevard from York Avenue to St. Mary Avenue will also include new protected bike lane for both southbound and northbound travel and may include plans to extend the bike lanes to Broadway in the future. Due to low traffic volumes on southbound Memorial Boulevard between St Mary and York the two existing travel lanes will be reduced to a singular travel lane to allow existing parking to be maintained.
