Sunnylea Crescent and Metcalfe Street pedestrian walkway

About the project

A map showing construction impacts to the  pedestrian walkway connecting Metcalfe Street and Sunnylea Crescent.The City is working with Goetz Construction to upgrade underground water and sewer pipes on Metcalfe Street from Speedvale Avenue to Terry Boulevard, including the Speedvale Avenue and Metcalfe Street intersection. In addition to water and sewer pipe replacement, work includes the replacement of curb and gutter, sidewalks, driveway aprons and final paving. The road’s current two-lane configuration will be maintained as a two-lane road.

A new sanitary sewer will be installed in the pedestrian walkway connecting Sunnylea Crescent to Metcalfe Street between 37 and 39 Sunnylea Crescent.

Construction on Sunnylea Crescent starts October 10

Construction on Sunnylea Crescent and the pedestrian walkway that connects to Metcalfe Street is expected to start on or about October 10 and will take approximately one month, weather permitting. Local access will be maintained for residents living in the construction area.

Pedestrian access will be maintained

Some sections of the sidewalk in the construction area will be removed as part of the work, and will be covered with gravel until they are replaced. Pedestrians may be required to cross the road at designated areas. Pedestrians are asked to follow the direction of signs and workers. The pedestrian walkway will be closed during the installation of the sanitary sewer on the walkway. Pedestrians will be required to detour to Pleasant and Metcalfe.

Home and business accesses

All businesses in the construction area will remain open and accessible throughout construction.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.) Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property and delays should be expected.

City services

The contractor may have to relocate bins for collection on scheduled pick days. Please ensure that all containers are marked with your municipal street address so they can be returned. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb, as per your regular schedule.

The City appreciates your patience, understanding and co-operation during this important construction project. Project details and updates will be posted on
