The purpose of this notice is to provide an update on the status of the Greenfield-Main-Hawthorne et al. reconstruction project, which is planned for your neighbourhood. Your interest and continued involvement in this project is appreciated.
The Greenfield-Main-Hawthorne et al. reconstruction Project includes the replacement of aging combined sewers with separate storm and sanitary sewers, the replacement of sections of older watermains, and the reconstruction of the roadways, including the implementation of complete street features for the betterment of all road users in your community.
After much consideration, a decision has been made to adjust the construction schedule for the Greenfield Avenue, Main Street, Hawthorne Avenue et al. reconstruction Project. Construction is now planned to start in early 2021 with completion expected by the end of 2023. The exact construction schedule will be confirmed as we move closer to commencement. An information session will be held in spring 2020 to present on-going design advancements. Information sessions will also be scheduled in advance of each construction season.
Commencing the project in 2021 will provide the opportunity to maximize the construction season and will also minimize the traffic impacts in the downtown core. This will allow for other large construction projects including the Elgin Street Renewal and the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) Highway 417 Nicholas Street Underpass replacement to be substantially completed in advance of the commencement of this project. The project will have no impact on the timing of the proposed MTO Highway 417 Downtown Bridges project which includes the Canal Bridge and the Main Street Bridge. Staff are continuing to move forward with this project design, and the additional time will be utilized to finalize design elements, including utility relocation and cycling improvements.
We remain committed to keeping the community and yourself up to date on progress.
