Project Details

A Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and preliminary design was completed in 2015 for Sidney Street from Tracey Street / Tracey Park Drive to Bell Boulevard. Based on the preferred option resulting from the Environmental Assessment, this project includes:

  • Reconstruction and widening of the Sidney Street / Bell Boulevard intersection to add dedicated turn lanes on each approach to accommodate traffic growth.
  • Widening of Sidney Street between Bell Boulevard and Tracey Street to add a centre two-way left turn lane to assist traffic turning into the many entrances along this corridor. 
  • Realignment of the Sidney Street / Tracey Street / Tracey Park Drive intersection to eliminate the “jog” between both legs of the intersection and to add dedicated left turn lanes for traffic on Sidney Street.
  • Replacement of the watermain and asphalt resurfacing from Maple Drive to Bell Boulevard.
  • This Sidney Street Corridor – Bell Boulevard to Maple Drive project was included in 2017 Capital Projects. Since then, property acquisition, utility relocations and detail design work have been ongoing.

Project Update

  • Relocation of a major pole line and accompanying underground duct work is anticipated to be completed in Spring 2019.
  • $7,250,000 was approved for construction in the City’s 2019 Capital Budget.
  • Detail design and approvals are being finalized.
  • Construction to start Fall 2019.
