Transportation Infrastructure Projects

2019 Transportation Infrastructure Projects


Project Name Description  Budget
Road Resurfacing and Rehabilitation Program
  • The road rehabilitation program includes pulverizing, road base strengthening and a double surface treatment (tar & chip) seal; roadside ditching; and cross culvert replacements.
  • The road resurfacing program includes single surface treatment (SST/'tar & chip') and urban 'shave and pave'; these works involve milling the top portion off of the road then reinstating with a lift of hot mix asphalt for a final top course.
  • There will also be isolated base repairs and necessary appurtenance adjustments (i.e. manhole covers, valves, etc.)
  • Resurfacing results in reduced maintenance costs and fewer damage claims caused by potholes. 
Culvert Replacement and Rehabilitation Program
  • The recent 2016 Municipal Culvert Inspection Appraisals identified a number of culverts as having a "1 to 5" year time of need for replacement
  • From a health and safety perspective, the Town needs to replace old deteriorated corrugated steel pipe road cross culverts that are in very poor condition
Guiderail Installation Program
  • The Town completed a pilot program in 2018
  • Two key locations have been identified for 2019 - Quarry Rd. &  19th St. 
  • This project will improve overall roadside safety for all road users in Lincoln
Greenlane Rd. Reconstruction - Design Phase
  • Greenlane from Lincoln Ave. to Cedarbrook Lane is proposed to be upgraded to a full urban standard
  • The road reconstruction will improve the overall driving surface of the roadway and roadside drainage
  • Upgrading to full urban standard increases driver awareness that motorists are entering an urban area where pedestrians and cyclists may be present; this leads to improved traffic safety
  • New concrete sidewalks will provide pedestrians with important walking linkages for the commercial district on Greenlane near Ontario Street as well as the proposed Konkle Creek multi-use trail that is planned for construction
Frost Rd. Bridge No. 20 Replacement Options
  • The Town's 2016 Municipal Bridge Inspection Appraisals identified that the Frost Road Bridge No. 20 should be removed and was demolished in 2018
  • Feedback from the Active Transportation Committee and members of the public suggested that a crossing be reinstated to maintain a continuous road network link along Frost Avenue which would allow for a secondary cycling route to the Town's southern boundary line
  • This project will provide continuous road network linkages for area residents and promote active transportation
Elizabeth St. Road Reconstruction
  • Elizabeth Street is proposed to be upgraded to a full urban standard. 
  • The road reconstruction will improve the overall driving surface of the roadway and roadside drainage
  • The new concrete sidewalks will help promote active transportation and provide important walking linkages for pedestrians
  • New sanitary sewer installations will reduce current maintenance obligations for broken and deteriorated infrastructure and limit wet weather infiltration into the sewer system thereby reducing treatment costs at the treatment plant
Rittenhouse Rd. Reconstruction - Design Phase
  •  The scope of the road reconstruction work will include storm sewers, new road base and paving with concrete curb and gutters, concrete sidewalks and street lighting improvements
  • New municipal sidewalks will be installed in response to resident requests and to improve pedestrian safety
  • The new concrete sidewalk will provide important walking linkages for pedestrians and children that frequently walk to the nearby Twenty Valley Public School
  • The proposed road reconstruction will also improve the overall driving surface of the roadway and roadside drainage
