Roads and Sidewalks

You are here

The Town of Georgina maintains a sophisticated road network for motorists, public transit, pedestrians and cyclists. Through cost effective and environmentally responsible means, the Town creates safe and convenient passage for users, provides an aesthetically pleasing environment, and ensures the longevity of the Town's infrastructure. 

In this section you can learn about the Town of Georgina's Adopt-A-Road program, disruptions and closures, spring street sweeping, street lights, water and sewer information, utility locates, and more.

Resurfacing delay - Queensway and Simcoe Street 

The asphalt resurfacing of the Queensway and Simcoe Street will be completed in early summer of 2020. The recycled asphalt will be placed on Cryderman Sideroad and Miles Road. The work cannot be completed sooner due to constraints related to the planned use of the milled asphalt from the Queensway and Simcoe Street.  Installing surface treatment and slurry seal is best completed between May 15 and Sept 1. There are specific constraints related to temperature for the placement of these materials which may not be met later in the season. Installing surface treatment and slurry seal in early summer will result in a better, long-lasting surface.

Road Construction Projects:

Church Street Partial Closure - beginning week of Sept. 30

Expect delays on Church Street in Keswick for watermain work at Natanya Boulevard.

This work will start in early summer 2020. 

Thank you for your patience. 

The Town of Georgina is conducting asphalt resurfacing and concrete repair work at the following locations:

The Queensway North box culvert replacement

The culvert on the Queensway North between Old Homestead Road and Church Street will be closed until the fall of 2019 for the installation of new storm and sanitary sewers, watermains and the replacement of the existing culvert. The culvert replacement will also allow for the widening of the Queensway North to a two-way road, as well as increase pedestrian access crossing the culvert.

  • This project is a great example of how collaborating with developers, the Town can create cost savings and get work done faster. 
  • Keswick Gardens Retirement Home is accessible from the south entrance only, off Church Street.

Spring Load Restrictions

Every spring, between March 1 and May 15, there is a load restriction to 5 tonnes per axle.

The reason for this is that, with the warmer weather, the roads become soft, and with any loads larger than the limit, the roads could potentially be damaged.
