Trees: Only six trees will need to be removed to accommodate the reconstruction however 21 new trees will be planted and 41 are to be protected. Please note these are estimates only and based on conditions of the trees during construction, this number is subject to change.
Parking: This phase of Main Street currently has 71 parking stalls and the proposed design contains 73.
Parking Lanes: The previous phases of the Main Street has parking lanes at 2.7 metres wide while the draft design for the final phase has parking lanes at 3.0 metres wide. As well, bollards will only be used at crosswalks for safety which will provide more space for vehicle doors opening on the sidewalk side of the road.
The tentative time is to have the design finalized by the end of April, tender awarded by the end of May, starting construction by early June and completion by fall 2017, weather permitting.
