Process 

PS Sidhu Trucking has completed construction work for the Sixth Avenue Local Improvement Project. The project focused on the portion of Sixth Avenue located between Ogilvie and Jarvis Streets. The design was shaped by public input received on Draft 1 of the design, which was released and discussed at an Open House in February 2016. Approximately 20 people attended the meeting, others participated by emailing their comments.

Background

The underground infrastructure in various downtown areas is approaching the end of its service life. The City is staging the reconstruction of this infrastructure through Local Improvement (LI) Projects so that it does not require replacing all at once. The process allows for underground works (e.g. water mains, sewer mains, and storm catchments) to be updated and sized to meet current and projected capacity needs. Surface works are rebuilt to meet current standards for infrastructure design.

Goals of the Sixth Avenue Local Improvement Project were to:

  • Replace underground infrastructure, where needed;
  • Upgrade the road surface to improve drainage, accessibility, and safety;
  • Improve pedestrian and cycling infrastructure;
  • Improve the streetscape through a landscaped design; and
  • Put the finishing touches on the Black St roundabout.   

There is no property owner charge or vote associated with the Sixth Avenue LI Project.
