The recommended upgrades were approved by Council in fall 2015 with the support of the federal government’s Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Fund.
Our proposed upgrades include:
Construction is scheduled for mid-2017 with estimated completion by fall 2017.
Hours of work:
In summer 2016, we held an open house to receive feedback on proposed designs (2 MB) for the intersection improvements.
Construction will occur on Knight Street and will occasionally impact adjacent streets. Each block may be impacted by construction for several months. The construction work is being carefully planned to limit the overall impact to residents, businesses, and road users.
During construction, some full road closures will be needed on weekends to allow for major construction.
Parking in the area may be restricted to accommodate construction. Restrictions will change during the project and will be removed as soon as they aren't needed.
Access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times. Sidewalks and crosswalks will generally be maintained during construction.
Improving the intersection is part of achieving our Transportation 2040 Plan, which was adopted by Council in 2012. Relevant plan directions include:
