Open House Recording

On November 22, 2021 the Town of Innisfil and the Consultant Team from WSP Canada delivered a virtual Open House to introduce the project to the community and answer any questions related to the preliminary design. A recording of the Open House Session can be viewed here. We will be accepting questions and comments about the project until Friday, December 13th, 2021 - please use the "Questions" Tool or the Mapping tool below to provide your feedback!

About the Project

We're improving 25th Side Road from Big Bay Point Road to Innisfil Beach Road and adding new features to create a more bicycle and pedestrian-friendly street. This project is an opportunity to bring an active-transportation-first approach to road design to improve the safety and the experience of all road users, expanding transportation choice for residents of Innisfil. The Town will also be exploring the use of traffic calming initiatives and green street features as part of the design to create a street that is safer, more comfortable and more sustainable. The result will be more room for residents to walk, bike, and rollerblade around town while also meeting the needs of residents and visitors who drive.

How long until it's finished?

This work will take a number of years to complete, but we're starting with a preliminarily design for 2021. During this time, we will be creating a phasing plan which will determine the order in which sections of the road should be constructed. In 2022 we will be doing detailed design for phase 1 and, starting in 2023, we are hoping to be ready to construct the first section of roadway. The design and construction of the second and third sections will carry on in 2023 and 2024.

How will this affect me?

You may notice some geotechnical investigations which may create temporary single lane closures, traffic disruptions, and noise.

How can I get involved?

Tune into our public info session by watching the video on our YouTube channel on November 22nd from 7-8pm. Alternatively, you can register to attend the Open House Webinar here - this will allow you to use the chat function and ask questions of the project team live during the session.

    I question the 85th percentile average speed of traffic on 25 Sideroad. The speed increases north of 9th Line, rises again north of 10th Line then increases north of Lockhart Rd. What traffic calming measures are proposed in the Low Density sections of the corridor? The speed awareness signs place earlier this summer were moderately effective for a period of 2-3 days.

    remackenzie asked 6 days ago

    For the Low Density Residential areas of the corridor, vehicle lanes are being narrowed to help reduce speeds, with additional traffic calming devices being proposed for consideration in the detailed design phase of the reconstruction. More information about the proposed designs can be found in the PDF of the Presentation file from the PIC, found in the Documents Section of this site.

    Will there be a sidewalk continuing from rose lane to the 11th line finally??

    Kerri123 asked 5 days ago

    Separated cycle tracks and sidewalks are proposed for 25th sideroad on both sides of the road from Innisfil Beach Road to Mapleview Drive as part of this project. North of Mapleview, the facility will transition to a multi-use path on one side of the road.

    There is currently a traffic safety issue at the 10th/25th intersection - partly due to visual obstructions to the south when westbound on the 10th and to excessive vehicle speed on the 25th. Your design may already address this issue but I would just like to stress the need for this improvement - hopefully in the early stages of the project.

    If the ditches will be eliminated where will the water from sump pumps go.

    S.reid asked 6 days ago

    25th Side Road is proposed to be urbanized from Innisfil Beach Road with a subsurface drainage system, and low impact development treatments like bioswales will help manage stormwater in an environmentally sustainable way for minor storm events by filtering and slowing the release of runoff. An overflow pipe system will address run-off from major storm events.

    What are your plans for the corner of Lockhart and 25th Sideroad? I have the corner house, 794 Lockhart and want to know if this will effect my property.

    Mugsy asked 7 days ago

    The east side of 25th Sideroad from Lockhart to 70m north of Cook is the planned Innis Village development, proposed as a mixed-use, vibrant, environmentally sustainable community. Improvements to the intersection of 25th and Lockhart including turn lanes are required to accommodate this development. You can find more information about the Innis Village project in the "Documents" Section of the project page.

    How will be able to access the roadway from our driveway with the green space between our driveway and the roadway and if there is a clearance area how will that be maintained in the winter months.

    S reid asked 8 days ago

    The Town of Innisfil will maintain responsibility for the snow clearance on all municipal assets, including the roadway, cycle tracks and sidewalks proposed along 25th Sideroad. 

    Maintenance of private driveways will continue to be the responsibility of the individual property owners.

    What are the plans for the downtown commercial corridor? Why have you designed the area around 25th and Lockhart as downtown commercial corridor, when it clearly is not downtown? Are there plans for lights at the corner of 25th and Lockhart? Extra lanes? I would appreciate any info that you have as I live at 790 Lockhart Road, the second house in from this intersection.

    will a side walk be put in from rose lane to the 10th line or even farther up?

    x0babbi_savannahx0 asked 22 days ago

    Yes, sidewalks are proposed on both sides of 25th Side Road from Innisfil Beach Road to Mapleview, and a multi-use path on the east side from Mapleview to Big Bay Point Road.

    How much land is going to be expropriated along the 25th?The west side has less houses north of 10th less families and houses would be affected..with the speeds up and down 25th with a bike lane could also be very dangerous as cars pass each other as it is..well over the posted speed limit..

    Concerned Alconian asked 21 days ago

    The intent is for no property acquisition in the rural and low density residential contexts, and small increase (from the existing 20m to 23m) in the future downtown development areas. The bike lanes proposed as part of this plan are also physically separated from the roadway, set behind the curb and green features like bioswales next the sidewalks. Design measures are also being proposed to address speeding concerns, including narrower lanes, centre medians, and a reduced posted speed limit.

    Will we be getting our sewers during this phase?

    Loraine asked 21 days ago

    No sewer installation is currently planned for this area.
