Repair work on several streets in a Burlington neighbourhood will ultimately bring new dedicated bike lanes and reduce the number of car lanes on one street.

The work is scheduled to begin this summer and centre on Prospect Street which will see the road resurfaced, curbs, sidewalks and bus pads replaced and watermains installed.

Then, on Prospect from Grahams Lane to Guelph Line, protected bike lanes will be created with a protected intersection at Brant Street.

As well, on Prospect from Guelph Line to Cumberland Avenue, cycle tracks will be installed, the sidewalk will be replaced on the north side, driving lanes will be reduced from four to two, a protected intersection will be created at Guelph Line, crosswalks will be raised at the Dynes and Regency intersections, and two pedestrian crossings will be created.

A protected bike lane is a dedicated path that is separate from car traffic. A cycle track is a designated part of the streetscape that is shared by both bikes and motor vehicles.

The project will take about two years to complete.

Other streets affected will include:

Dynes Road 

  • Road resurfacing
  • Spot sidewalk repairs where required
  • Curb and gutter replacement
  • Installation of watermain up to Woodward Avenue

Regency Court

  • Road resurfacing
  • Spot sidewalk and curb repairs
  • Installation of watermain, with a connection to be completed on Tecumseh Drive

Legion Road

  • Road resurfacing
  • Continuation of sidewalk from current ending to cul du sac
  • Spot curb replacement

A public information session that will discuss the impact of this project on residential and business properties will take place on May 13 at the Burlington Student Theatre, 2131 Prospect Street from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
