Update: York Road improvements– Stage 2 Brockville Avenue to Victoria Road

About the York Road improvements project

The City is replacing the aging water and sewer pipes along York Road between Stevenson Street and Victoria Road.

This year, the underground water and sewer pipes, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks will be replaced from Brockville Avenue to Victoria Road South.

Construction is expected to start April 2, weather permitting. To accommodate this work, York Road will be closed from Brockville Avenue to Victoria Road South in both directions with limited local access until late-fall 2024.
