About the project

Speedvale Avenue West will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Elmira Road North to Imperial Road North. Some short-term road closures and controlled access to businesses can also be expected during the project.

Construction includes the installation of new storm sewer and water pipes, new multi-use path, curb and gutter and final repaving.

Construction is expected to begin in spring 2022 and be completed by fall 2022.

    Thank you for your post. Transit will be engaged throughout the project to ensure that buses using Speedvale Avenue, Imperial Road North, and Elmira Road North are able to continue operating effectively. Any planned detour routes will be advertised ahead of time to ensure that no one misses their stop.

    Are their plans for more of a multi path on speedvale other than between imperial and Elmira? Why the north side of speedvale given the consistent sidewalks are on the south side from the Hanlon to Westwood?

    Dana asked about 1 month ago

    The Multi-Use Path is being constructed on the north side of Speedvale Avenue West between Elmira Road North and Imperial Road North to help facilitate pedestrian and cyclist traffic to the businesses on the north side of the road. Plans for a multi-use path on the south side of the roadway are being included in the City's Transportation Plan, however the south side of the roadway is outside of the scope of this project.
