Did you know that the infrastructure in downtown Lindsay is over 100 years old? That means that the underground utilities, such as the storm sewer, sanitary sewer and watermain systems are outdated and need replacing. At the same time, we are taking the opportunity to address the road, sidewalk, landscaping and walkability features of the area.
The municipality is undertaking a design project to reconstruction downtown Lindsay. The project scope will involve a re-design of Lindsay between Victoria Avenue to the west, Lindsay Street to the east, Russell Street to the south and Peel Street to the North.
The project will address Downtown Kent Street in Lindsay, as well as portions of the surrounding streets:
Phase 1 of the project (completed), includes Peel Street from Victoria Avenue to William Street, and Russell Street from Lindsay Street to Victoria Avenue.
Phase 2 of the Downtown Reconstruction includes Kent Street from William to Lindsay Street, and Lindsay Street from Russell to Kent Street E. Phase 2 work is to be constructed between February and November of 2020, ensuring that Kent St is not reconstructed during the busy summer months (July and August).
Phase 3 includes Kent Street from Victoria to William Street, Cambridge Street from Peel Street to Russell Street. Phase 3 work is to be constructed between March and November 2021 ensuring that Kent St is not reconstructed during the busy summer months (July and August).
Phase 4 includes William Street from Peel Street to Russell Street, York Street from Peel Street to Russell Street and Peel Street from William Street to York Street. Work is to be constructed between March and November 2022.
