Sidewalk Improvement Program

As part of the planned construction improvements, the Town of Innisfil will be repairing various sidewalks within the Town beginning at the end of June 2021. The selected sections of sidewalk were chosen based on the results of the Sidewalk Needs Study, which is completed every 5 years. This study evaluates the sidewalk condition and rates each sidewalk section. Those that receive higher ratings are in worse condition than a section of sidewalk that has a lower rating.

Repair vs. Replace

By programming the repair of sidewalks, the Town can keep maintenance costs down as opposed to leaving the sidewalks to deteriorate. When sidewalks deteriorate, they require replacement instead of resurfacing which raises costs and so much more.

AODA Compliant

The sidewalks will be reconstructed and compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) including Tactile Warning Surface Indicator Plates that will be added at the intersections.

What sidewalks are being repaired?

The following sections of sidewalk will be constructed this year:

  • King Street South from Queen Street to Victoria Street West (West side of the road)
  • King Street South from Church Street to Hamilton Street (East side of the road)
  • Church Street from King Street to William Drive (South side of the road)
  • Church Street from Elizabeth St to 114m to the East (North side of the road)
  • Cook Avenue from Victoria Street East to Heritage Road (West side of the road)

How will this affect residents?

Sections of sidewalk that are being replaced or repaired will be closed to the public for the duration of the planned construction. Signage will be placed on the closed sections of the sidewalk and traffic disruptions may occur.

Residents can expect construction noise from Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 8:00pm. Due to the nature of construction, dust could occur during daytime hours.

Driveway access will be maintained throughout the construction, except for temporary disturbances when sidewalk is placed in front of residences. A minimum 48 hour notice will be provided to residents prior to this occurring.
