The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has proceeded to detailed design for the reconstruction of Burkholder Street, Russel Avenue and Blake Street. As a result of the 2017 Budget Approval, Burkholder Street will proceed to construction in 2017. Russel Avenue and Blake Street will be constructed in 2018. The detailed design reflects comments and feedback received at the previous Public Information Centre held on November 16, 2016. The detailed design is exploring: updating the streetscape consistent with heritage considerations; repaving the streets once underground utilities and curbs have been installed; replacing the existing sanitary sewer on all three streets; replacing the watermain and adding a new storm sewer on Burkholder Street and Russel Avenue; construction of new sidewalks; and consideration of making Blake Street a one-way street southbound, including consideration of a bicycle lane.
A third Public Information Centre will be held to present the detailed design concepts to the public and to obtain additional input and feedback from interested residents.
