Gananoque Revitalizes Pine Street

November 04, 2022

The Town of Gananoque had accessibility in mind when it completed a street revitalization project this past year.

The Town dedicated its Canada Community-Building Fund investment and other funds toward revitalizing 225 metres of Pine Street, located in a residential neighbourhood in Gananoque. This particular area had some infrastructure that was over a century old and required attention.

This project included reconstruction of sanitary and storm sewer, watermain and roadway reconstruction, and replacement of curbs, sidewalks, interlock bump-outs and fire hydrants. The town also planted new trees and added decorative street lighting.

Gananoque’s project focused on upgrades to infrastructure, but also took into consideration accessibility. Its newly installed sidewalks are in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), which is great news for residents in the community with accessibility needs.

Aside from this, the Town planted new trees through its boulevard tree planting program, and added designated parking on the south side of the street for businesses and residents.
