Gunn Street Reconstruction

This project includes the complete reconstruction of Gunn Street from Peel Street to St. Vincent Street, including new sanitary sewer, storm sewer, watermain, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and asphalt.

​​Most of the infrastructure in along Gunn St was constructed in the early to mid-1950's and is at or approaching the end of its maximum potential life.  It has experienced age-related deterioration or physical failure (watermain breaks, etc.), and is need of replacement.

This area was indentified as a candidate for full right of way reconstruction based on aggregated risk associated with surface and subsurface infrastructure.  Given the age and deteriorated condition of the infrastructure, other lifecycle strategies are not expected to signifcantly extend the existing remaining life of current assets or deliever expected service levels.  

Full reconstruction of the right of way will improve service levels to the community, allow the City to monitor the performance of the assets over time, and bundle the application of future lifecycle activies together.  This will reduce capital and operating costs in the the long term, minimixe disruption to the community, and limit environmental damages from construction. Learn about pavement management​
