London-Middlesex is in the Red/Control category of the Provincial Keeping Ontario Safe and Open framework. A number of City facilities have reopened to the public for in-person programs and services.
Dundas Street East between Adelaide and Ontario Streets in Old East Village (OEV) is a dense commercial area with high transit ridership. To help provide a safe, pedestrian-friendly environment with access to transit connections, this project will improve the streetscape with wider sidewalks, separated cycle lanes, trees and other urban design elements, while simultaneously addressing necessary underground work, including replacing and upgrading utilities, aging sewers and watermains.
The project will continue the work to build a vibrant commercial core with a unique heritage character. The goal is to create an environment that serves as a community hub for local residents and draws visitors as a distinct destination.
The rendering above shows how, through "complete street" design, various features work together to help define paths that accommodate multiple types of movements including driving, biking and walking.
The project involves reconstructing Dundas Street from Adelaide Street North to Ontario Street in two phases in 2020 and 2021. The map below shows the construction project limits from English Street to Ontario Street in 2020 and from Adelaide Street to English Street in 2021.
Construction on phase two of the project is scheduled to begin on February 22, 2021 weather permitting.
A two-meter-wide space in front of buildings will remain accessible for pedestrians. Pedestrian crossings will also be created mid-block and identified with signs at select locations within the 2021 construction zone. Vehicles will still be able to access municipal parking lots and streets north and south of the construction zone. Read more about the latest construction update.
