Starting Tuesday, June 11, work will begin on Phase 1 of the Bank Street Renewal Project, a multi-year construction contract that requires Bank Street to be reduced to one lane in each direction from Riverside Drive to Collins Avenue.

The work zone for the 2024 construction season will be between Riverside Drive (westbound) and the Bélanger Avenue/Lamira Street intersection.

Work being completed in Phase 1 of the Bank Street renewal includes the installation, rehabilitation and/or replacement of various components of the underground infrastructure including watermains, sanitary and storm sewers, full reconstruction of the road and sidewalks, as well as the addition of a cycle track, street lighting, traffic signals and streetscape improvements.

The vision for the Bank Street Renewal Project is to construct a functional and safe complete arterial main street with a well-balanced multi-modal transportation network which will cater to vehicles, transit, cyclists and pedestrians.

Access to local businesses

Bank Street businesses remain open during construction. Access to local businesses will be maintained at all times, and work is being coordinated to not impede customer access.

Traffic impacts and OC Transpo

Traffic delays around the construction zone are expected. Signage will be in place to notify residents of the impacted area.

OC Transpo routes will be maintained through the construction zone. 

Pedestrians and cyclists

Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained through the work zone at all times during construction.
