Final design for Lakeshore Road reconstruction approved
Council approved the final design for Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project last week. Reconstruction between Navy and Allan streets is scheduled to start in the spring of 2019 and will be delivered in two phases:
Phase 1 in 2019 (spring to fall) - between Navy and Dunn streets
Phase 2 in 2020 (spring to fall) between Dunn and Allan streets.
Work on revitalizing the downtown streetscape began last year with the reconstruction of the Lakeshore Road Bridge. The bridge incorporated the new streetscape features such as granite curbs and light standards that will be included for the Lakeshore Project.
A new community kitchen is now open at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre. The commercial-grade kitchen will provide a venue for cooking and nutrition programs for all ages including upcoming spring programs and summer camps. It will also be available for community programs and events. The kitchen was made possible thanks to a $92,500 Ontario150 Community Capital grant.
