Consultation has concluded

Water Street has long been a hub of activity in Downtown St. John's. From its earliest days as the commercial district to today as a bustling street with increased social activity and tourism attraction, Water Street is uniquely St. John's. The City is currently in the planning phase for the replacement of century-old infrastructure beneath Water Street between the area of Waldegrave and Prescott Streets. This work will start in 2017 and is expected to take five years starting on the west end and moving east cove by cove.

With this project comes the opportunity for the City to think

With this project comes the opportunity for the City to think about how Water Street could be improved above-ground. What would make Water Street function better? What features could enhance its already unique qualities? The City is actively seeking ideas and input from residents and downtown stakeholders on how to improve Water Street. We will be hosting a number of events throughout the City and on the street itself to make it as easy as possible for everyone to provide input.

This page also provides space for input and will keep folks up to date on what's happening with the project.
