Current projects

Lake Drive and Hedge Road Streetscape Functional Assessment


Lake Drive and Hedge Road are multi-purpose roads used extensively by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians for access to Lake Simcoe. Concerns have been raised by residents and road users regarding road safety so all user groups could share its use in a safe manner. Town staff have put several traffic mitigation solutions in place over the past year including reduced speed limits, community safety zones and the installation of traffic bollards.   

This study is a key component in realizing the vision for Lake Drive and Hedge Road, and transforming it into an inviting, multi-use road that will serve as a destination location for both residents and visitors to enjoy. This project will allow for a comparative engineering assessment of options, taking into consideration community, technical and financial considerations for all road users. The Town has retained an engineering consultant, WSP Ltd to develop the design and assist with public consultation. It will be tied to and support the outcomes of the Waterfront Parks Master Plan. 

This project will follow the master plan approach under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, including extensive public consultation. Through this process, the study team will confirm the problems and/or opportunities; evaluate alternative designs; select a preferred design; examine impacts on the social, cultural, and natural environments; and identify measures to mitigate those impacts.
