City of Belleville Begins Road Work on Albion Street, Adds Bike Lanes
The City of Belleville broke ground on a large-scale infrastructure project this past week on Albion Street in the city.
Albion Street is a prominent north-south connection on the city’s road network, linking Station Street with Pine Street.
The project includes reconstruction of the roadway, replacing the existing sanitary sewer, adding a new storm sewer, replacing a 112-year-old watermain and replacing gas lines.
Active transportation features have also been implemented into the design, with a new, widened east-side sidewalk and the addition of new, independent bike lanes on both sides of the roadway. The addition of bike lanes is in line with the City’s Transportation Master Plan which identifies Albion Street as part of the recommended cycling network.
The project was funded in-part by the Canada Community-Building Fund and is expected to be completed by early June 2023.
