Over 40 Cornwall streets to receive improvements in 2014

March 20, 2014


Over 40 streets will be repaired or rebuilt this year as part of the City of Cornwall’s annual investment in the transportation network.

The summer roadwork season will also involve several active transportation projects including new sidewalks and the addition of bike lanes in the Cornwall Business Park to complement work undertaken last year.

All told, the City will be adding or repairing 12.5 kilometres of roadways, 1 kilometre of sidewalks and 3.7 kilometres of bike lanes.

Several dozen streets will receive work this year as part of the City’s yearly grouping of asphalt paving and concrete works projects.

This list of work (see below) includes portions of busy arteries like Pitt Street, Second Street and McConnell Avenue as well as quieter residential streets. The work is currently out to tender and it’s expected to be completed between May and the end of August.

“Through our pavement management system, we rate the condition of every street in the city, and we use this tool to help determine which streets receive improvements,” said Jamie Fawthrop, Design & Construction Engineer. “There are a number of factors to consider, such as traffic volumes and the age and condition of watermains and sewers on a particular street.”

Other road projects planned for 2014 include the reconstruction of Conliffe Avenue, Whitehead Avenue and Seventh Street East from Sydney Street to the eastern limit.

As per the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, new bike lanes will be built this year along the road shoulders on Second Street from Anderson Drive to Boundary Road and on Boundary Road from Marleau Avenue to SCM Way. These additions will build on work done last year to add bike lanes on Boundary Road from Marleau Avenue to Gray’s Creek and Industrial Park Drive from Optimum Drive to Boundary Road.

“These additions will create better connections for cyclists between the Business Park and other parts of the city,” said Mr. Fawthrop.

The City is hosting an open house on Tuesday, March 25th at the Municipal Works office (1225 Ontario Street) for the 2014 list of asphalt paving and concrete works projects. Members of the public will be able to review and comment on the various projects that are planned. The open house will run from 9 am to 12 pm, 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm to 8 pm.

Residents who wish to review the plans and are unable to attend the open house can contact Mr. Fawthrop at (613) 930-2787 ext. 2209.

“The open house will give residents and business owners a chance to review the plans and have their questions answered before the work begins,” said Mr. Fawthrop.
