Linegar Avenue

Phase 1B is a continuation of the street upgrading from Phase 1A.

This phase includes the construction of a new storm sewer system (including associated manholes, catch basins and storm laterals) and new sidewalk on both sides of Linegar Ave from Civic #61 to #91. Construction begins the week of week of August 19th and will continue to the end of October 2019.

The area of work is from Civic # 61 to # 91 Linegar Avenue and some minor work for approximately 50 m on Horlick Avenue from the intersection of Linegar Avenue. Please see attached drawing of the overview of the project.

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.

Construction hours will be Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Motor vehicle and pedestrian access will be impacted in the construction zone. The Contractor will keep 1 lane of traffic open. 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.

Q&A

  • Will traffic calming be included along Linegar Avenue?

    Marunga asked over 2 years 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.
