Reconstruction to Selby St, Evelyn St & Empress Lane were all approved for repair in the 2019/2020 budget. All three roads were also flagged in the Road Needs Study to support the need for gravel roads to be paved. We want to ensure that Innisfil residents in these areas are able to get from A to B as safely as possible. A notice to residents will be provided to residents along Selby, Evelyn, & Empress to make them aware of construction taking place. Please note that the design is complying with Heritage requirements as well as Town Standards and AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) requirements.






Selby Street Updates Include:

- Adding a sidewalk on the north side of the street

- Incorporating a tactile walking surface at the intersection of King and Selby to comply with AODA requirements

- Adding two paved lanes in either direction

- Curb and gutter will be reinstated

Evelyn St & Empress Lane Updates Include:

- Paving of the entire street

- Adding a turnaround at the end of Evelyn St to accommodate large vehicles such as snowplows, emergency services and waste collection

How Will I Be Affected?

Construction is scheduled to begin July 19, 2021, weather dependent. There will be interruptions to traffic during construction with detours possible. Notices to the Public will be delivered prior to construction commencing. There will be times when driveways will not be accessible due to sidewalk and curb concrete placements as well as brief periods while paving is taking place. Residents will be notified prior to these events on alternate parking locations.
