UPDATE: Construction notice: Woodlawn Road multi-use path and underground infrastructure construction starts October 9

UPDATE: The sewer main has been completed on the south side Woodlawn Road and the contractor will now construct on the north side watermain, sewer and multiuse path from Silvercreek Parkway to Imperial Road. Regal Road will be closed for approx. 2 months.

Silvercreek Parkway to Imperial Road

About the project

The City is working with Capital Paving Inc. to construct the multi-use path that will be built on Woodlawn Road’s north and south sides between the existing curb and property line. The multi-use path will be three metres wide for use by pedestrians, cyclists and other users to get around. The multi-use path is funded by the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program to build safer, more connected cycling routes for Ontarians and to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.

Construction will also include the replacement of the underground sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water main pipes from Regal Road to Silvercreek Parkway. This work is unrelated to the construction of the pathway. The City is reducing future traffic impacts by combining the work with other projects in the area.

Construction starts October 1

Construction is expected to start tentatively on or about October 9 and be completed by June 2019, weather permitting.

Hanlon closed at Speedvale for underground infrastructure work

Hanlon Expressway (Highway 6) will be closed in both directions at Speedvale Avenue. Traffic will detour via Speedvale Avenue, Silvercreek Parkway and Woodlawn Road.

Woodlawn Road will have lane reductions between Silvercreek Parkway to Regal Road, however, one lane in each direction will be maintained.

After the underground sewer and water main are installed, Woodlawn Road will be closed at Imperial Road for approximately one month in 2019. Hanlon will be closed again for the same duration.

Property access and parking

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.
