Union Street East reconstruction from King Street to Moore Avenue

Welcome to the project page for the planned reconstruction of Union Street East between King Street South and Moore Avenue South (tentatively scheduled for 2021). The City intends to completely reconstruct this section of Union Street to replace the aged watermain, sewers, and road structure. This is also an opportunity to improve Union Street for pedestrians and cyclists. The city has retained the engineering firm of WalterFedy to assist with the planning and design of this project.

Details on the current stage of this project are in the News feed: right now, we are presenting the initial design options for this project for your feedback. Please take the time to view our Presentation video for details, and read through the Alternatives below. We want to know what you think, so please give us your thoughts through our survey, or ask us a question.

  • Two primary design alternatives have been developed for Union Street:

    Alternative 1 – new cycling infrastructure (bike lanes) 

    Alternative 2 – pedestrian-focused

    Alternative 1 includes pedestrian sidewalks and one-way bike lanes between King Street and Bowman Street, with three possible sub-alternatives for the area between Bowman Street and Moore Avenue, where there is more road space.

    Alternative 2 has been developed as a “pedestrian-focused” corridor, with wider sidewalks and boulevards. There are no dedicated bike lanes as part of this design, and as a result, nearby properties will be less impacted compared to Alternative 1. Instead, cyclists would be directed to a yet-to-be determined parallel route, to be identified in the coming update to the city’s Transportation Master Plan.

    Details on all Alternative 1 options and Alternative 2 are available in the News feed.
