Construction notice: Woodlawn Road multi-use path construction starts October 9

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 include the replacement of the underground sanitary sewer, storm sewer and water main pipes from Regal Road to Silvercreek Parkway.

Construction starts October 1

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

The Hanlon Expressway will be closed at Speedvale Avenue

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. 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.
