- Lakeshore Road from Maple Ave to the city limit: (Will be completed in conjunction with the Beachway Master Plan) $2.8 million, including $235k for bike lanes.
- Plains Road East from Fairview St to Brenda Crescent, full road reconstruction and proper storm drainage below the CN overpass: $1.3 million, including $75k for bike lanes.
- Plains Road East bridge rehabilitation (under CNR tracks), $1 million.
- Brock Ave, Elgin to Ontario, reconstruction and sidewalks, $310k.
- Edinburgh Drive reconstruction, including new curbs, sidewalks, pavement and storm sewer repairs/replacement, $1.2 million.
- New Street resurfacing from Martha to Guelph Line, $825k. NOTE: In 2015 staff will be submitting a report identifying the cost of providing segregated bike lanes along the New Street corridor. Last year, staff provided a report estimating that elevated bike lanes in this section would require widening New Street, for a total additional cost to the project of roughly $1 million. I do not support the widening, and am comfortable with staff’s initial proposal of a painted bike lane on the north side of the street, and sharrows (share the road markings) on the south side. See previous articles: Council considers widening New St for raised bike lanes for $2m and Staff recommend one bike lane on New, two lanes of traffic, one full centre turn lane; June 16
