Aging water and sewer pipes under the Bristol Street roadway need to be replaced. The City’s construction plans include the replacement of sanitary sewer (wastewater), storm sewer and water pipes, curb and gutter, and driveway aprons.

Traffic calming improvements include:

  • bike lanes,
  • 90 degree intersection realignment at Glasgow and Fountain streets,
  • road narrowing between Yorkshire and Essex streets,
  • curb narrowing (bump-outs) at Surrey and Wellington streets, and
  • restricted on-street parking on the north side of Bristol
