Downtown Reconstruction

January 8, 2021

With many of our businesses either closed or on restricted operations during the province-wide lockdown, it's the perfect time to get the 2021 construction season underway. You'll find that the fencing has gone up on Kent Street from inside William Street to inside Cambridge Street. Both William & Cambridge are fully accessible north/south, and for the first few weeks, pedestrian walkways are still intact on Kent Street.

Visitors to downtown have the option of parking on Kent Street to the east (William to Lindsay), to the west (Cambridge to Victoria), in designated spots on the side streets, or in municipal lots. The municipal lot north of Kent Street (bordering Cambridge, Peel & William) has easy access to Kent via alleyways.

Thank you for supporting our downtown businesses through the challenges of this year and last. Many have had to close their doors, but are still available to you through takeout, delivery, curbside pickup and booked appointments.
