Some new trees, enhanced boulevards and pedestrian amenities like new crossing signals are part of the $10 million plan to reconstruct Concession Street between Upper Wellington andUpper Sherman next year.
The plan includes water main replacement along the entire length of the reconstruction area and some sewer work.
Gary Moore, director of engineering services in the city’s public works department, noted some traffic calming measures such as bump-outs are also part of the plan.
“We’re trying to do those in areas where there’s no parking,” said Moore, who noted existing on-street parking will be maintained.
The public can see details of the plan at an open house on May 13, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Concession Street library.
Councillor Scott Duval and city staff will be on hand to answer questions.
