Linegar Avenue

There will be significant infrastructure improvements to the Linegar Avenue area with construction beginning April 30, 2018 and ongoing until November 14, 2018 to provide a new storm sewer system with upgraded streets and new sidewalks.

The improved street layout and sidewalks will provide safer walking to the Community Centre, Harry Yetman Playground, St. John Bosco School and Parish Hall, Health Centre and Valley Convenience Plus. The storm sewer system will provide new and enhanced water runoff protection to residents. City Policy will require assessments to be completed as a result of the work.

Planned work during the 2018 construction season includes:

  • Street excavation and new asphalt along Linegar Avenue, Civic # 25 - 63
  • Installation of new storm sewer and catch basins
  • Replacement of existing storm outlet/headwall near Linegar Avenue Civic 6
  • Re-instate property and landscaping as necessary
  • New sidewalk, complete with curb and gutter on both sides of the road from Learning Rd to Civic #63 Linegar Ave.
  • Re-alignment of Warford Rd and Linegar Ave intersection
  • Repair/replace curb, gutter and sidewalk (as necessary)

Construction hours will be Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Detours will be in place, as motor vehicle and pedestrian access will be impacted in the construction zone. The Contractor will keep 1 lane of traffic open for local traffic and emergency vehicles only. There may be times when portions of the road will have to be closed entirely. Flagpersons will be in place during construction hours and “yield to oncoming traffic” signs installed after hours.

  • Will traffic calming be included along Linegar Avenue?

    Marunga asked 10 months ago

    Traffic calming was a consideration for street improvements along Linegar Avenue.  Traffic calming is a term used whereby street designs use layouts and physical features to naturally cause traffic to slow down.   The street cross section for Linegar Avenue is reduced and uses sidewalk with coloured concrete boulevard areas.  The use of the boulevard next to the sidewalk in areas near the school, near the convenience store and the health center all assist in reducing the street width thereby contributing to traffic calming objectives.
