Road Design Project

​Duckworth Street New Transmission Watermain & Road Expansion

Bell Farm Road to St. Vincent Street

This two-phase project will reconstruct Duckworth Street from Bell Farm Road to St. Vincent Street.

The project includes new watermain, sewer replacements, and right-of-way improvements including, new sidewalks, new pavement, intersection upgrades, and road widening for bicycle lanes.

This project was initiated in 2014 as a Class Environmental Assessment Study to evaluate alternatives for implementing bike lanes and improved active transportation on Duckworth Street. The results of the EA were carried through into this detailed design project, which also includes replacement of aging underground infrastructure and other infrastructure improvements.
