Roadwork Updates

Roadwork and construction occurs throughout the City on an intermittent basis. During these times, the City advises residents and commuters to expect minor traffic delays and parking disruptions, and to choose an alternate route if possible. Signage is posted prior to any road closures, and regular updates are provided.

We recognize the inconvenience roadwork may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. All City roadwork is described in the table below, and shown on the map in red.

Road Maintenance

The City maintains approximately 130 km of streets, 42 km of lanes, 145 km of sidewalks, 52 traffic signals, and 1,700 streetlights to ensure the safe and comfortable mobility of the community. Road maintenance includes street cleaning, ice and snow control, pothole patching, traffic sign installations and replacements, line marking, vegetation control, and re-lamping of streetlights and signals as required.   

In addition to routine road-related maintenance, the City repaves approximately two kilometres of streets annually, based on a computerized infrastructure management program. The City also removes and replaces approximately 1,200 m of sidewalk annually, primarily in commercial areas with high pedestrian volume.

Well-maintained roads and walkways contribute to the efficient, effective movement of people and goods, but the City also envisions a greener road ahead. Any roadway expansion will only be supported if it furthers the City's vision of a sustainable community. By optimizing the use of its existing road network, the City aims to encourage more and more people to choose alternative transportation other than the single occupant vehicle.
