2nd St. resurfacing and corridor improvements
As part of this work, we're considering changes to improve safety for all people, with a focus on:
• Encouraging safer travel speeds
• Improving safety for people walking
• Upgrading the street corners to include accessible curb ramps
• Creating an all ages and abilities bicycle route
We'll replace the top layer of pavement as part of an ongoing maintenance program. This will extend the life of the street between larger reconstructions projects. The new pavement should last at least 10 years.
We'll also look at changes to the existing street configuration to improve safety.
• Installing an accessible curb ramp at corners where there is a need
• Narrowing the street to better manage vehicle speeds by creating a two-way bikeway on one side of the street
• Making it safer to walk across the street with concrete medians at priority locations
• Make it safer to walk along and across the corridor
• Create an all ages and abilities bicycle facility
• Keep traffic moving at an acceptable level
• Allow access for residents and visitors
Construction is underway and is anticipated to conclude by the end of 2023. During the first phase of work, there will be some parking restrictions but no long-term road closures. We will maintain access for residents and visitors.
We will hold at least three public meetings to provide updates on the project. You can also sign up for email updates below.

There will be a survey in late October, which will be your opportunity to provide input on the project and process. A link to the survey will be posted here, stay tuned.
We welcome community feedback and input. To-date we have done two rounds of community engagement to:
- Identify priorities.
- Review potential improvement options
- Develop a design concept for the project
- This report is a summary of the completed community engagement activities.
Past community meetings
- On March 21st, 2023, an open house held to present the recommended design for the project.
- On April 12th, 2023 an information meeting was held to present the overview of the project and the special assessment process.
