The City is constructing sidewalk (350m), multi-use path (800m) and underground storm sewer infrastructure on Eastview Road between Starwood Drive and Watson Parkway North.

A multi-use path will be constructed along the south side of Watson Road from Summit Ridge Road to Watson Parkway North. The City will also be completing curbs and gutters, and adding local storm drainage.

Construction starts July 24

Sidewalk work on the north side of Eastview Road, between Starwood Drive and Summit Ridge Drive, is expected to start July 24, 2017. There are no road closure impacts associated with this part of the work. Pedestrians will be able to continue using the sidewalk on the south side of Eastview Road throughout this part of the work.

Underground infrastructure and multi-use path work is expected to begin July 31, 2017 and will be completed at the end of November, weather permitting.

Residential roads are not designated detour routes. For the safety of the community, the City asks that drivers use the designated detour route.
