Jameson Avenue Reconstruction Update

Jameson Avenue is currently in the middle of a major reconstruction. Many of you have asked why the project appears to be quiet and at a stand still.

While road resurfacing and sidewalk construction will be completed in the Spring of 2009, underground water main work will still be going on during the winter season. The section between Springhurst and King which is almost complete will be opened as soon possible to help alleviate congestion. The contractor will then start the section between King and Queen in December and it will take until January/ February 2009 to complete. This section will be opened for one way traffic only during this time.

I am anticipating that from mid February to mid April, traffic will be totally opened between Springhurst to Queen until the road/sidewalk work begins in late April.

As part of this project, a community art presented is in the works which may include decorative tree planters, and art installation in sections of the sidewalk. This project is still at the very preliminary stages.
