Project Scope

West Street, Simcoe

The scope of work will generally consist of the installation of a Type 2 Level B PXO (dedicated pedestrian crossing) in accordance with Ontario Traffic Manual Book 15.

Staff have reviewed public feedback requested for all the potential locations for the pedestrian crossing on West Street.  Factors taken into consideration include property constraints, sidewalk continuity and accessibility to all community members.  The pedestrian crossing on West Street will be installed between Orchard Avenue and Brook Street.

Cedar Street, Simcoe

The scope of work will generally consist of the installation of a Type 2 Level B PXO (dedicated pedestrian crossing) in accordance with Ontario Traffic Manual Book 15.

Staff have considered all the potential locations for the pedestrian crossing on Cedar Street.  Factors taken into consideration include property constraints, sidewalk continuity and accessibility to all community members.  Upon field review, staff have established the location approximately fifty (50) metres east of Warren Road.

Construction Schedule

The tentative construction schedule is to start on or around August 18, 2021 and continue to October 2021.

During the construction of this project, it is our intention to minimize the impact on your everyday life.  If any special needs or requirements routinely occur during a day or week, we need to be made aware of them in order that the necessary arrangements can be made so that these needs can continue to be met during construction.
