McLeod Avenue and Main Street intersection expected to partially reopen June 14; prep begins for first phase of streetscape construction including new road closures

June 10 update: Please refer to this news item for updated information.


The intersection at McLeod Avenue and Main Street is expected to partially reopen on June 14, following extensive underground work at the intersection, which has been closed since mid-May for necessary underground work in the area as part of the City Centre streetscape revitalization project.

Once the intersection is able to partially reopen, new road closures will start being set up as part of the first phase of the streetscape construction. These closures will be in place for the remainder of the construction season and will have the following impacts:

  • There will be one-way traffic (eastbound) on McLeod Avenue with parallel parking. The westbound lane on McLeod Avenue between King Street and Queen Street will be closed.
  • There will be one-way traffic (northbound) on Main Street with angled parking.
  • There will be pedestrian access to all businesses.

Construction work as part of this phase will involve:

  • McLeod Avenue sewer relocation and service upgrades
  • Main Street watermain replacement and service upgrades
  • Utility relocations
  • Storm sewer replacement
  • Surface work on the north side of McLeod Avenue and west side of Main Street
  • Centre median construction along McLeod Avenue
  • Alley reconstruction

The streetscape revitalization project is part of the overall City Centre Area Redevelopment Plan, which is focused on revitalizing the area and making the City Centre a place where people of all ages come to shop, dine, work, live, socialize, interact and participate in a variety of community, arts and cultural experiences.

Businesses in the City Centre will remain open during the construction and the community is encouraged to continue supporting them throughout this temporary disruption in the area.

As a reminder, work also continues on the redevelopment of Columbus Park.
