CCBF Helps Woodstock Complete Multiple Road and Sidewalk Projects in 2023
The City of Woodstock was able to complete a number of local roads projects in 2023 that had a big impact on the community’s safety and wellbeing.
Investments from the CCBF allowed the City to complete several projects that included road and sidewalk reconstruction and replacement of aging underground water and wastewater systems throughout the community.
The City undertook the complete reconstruction of Wellington Street North from Ingersoll Avenue to Devonshire Avenue. This included full replacement of aging storm and sanitary infrastructure and watermain. It also included reconstruction of the street and sidewalks, and replacement of the worn-out signal light.
Dundas Street and Vansittart Avenue is one of the City’s busiest intersections. It was fully reconstructed in 2023. Similar to Wellington Street North, underground infrastructure was replaced, including storm and sanitary sewer and watermain. The road was also reconstructed and new traffic signals were installed, helping to improve safety for pedestrians and vehicles alike.
Springbank public school students were welcomed back to school in the fall to a new roadway and sidewalks on Sprucedale Road. The City rehabilitated 520 metres of roadway and sidewalks, including underground infrastructure, in accordance with the City’s asset management plan.
The City also replaced 700 metres of sidewalks along Industrial Avenue. The City actively works to address sidewalk gaps across the community in areas that are underserviced for active transportation. The new sidewalk on Industrial Avenue helps address that issue, and allows people the option to walk to work.
