Walton Street Reconstruction

We are planning significant infrastructure improvements on Walton Street to fix aging infrastructure and improve accessibility and design. This page provides information about the project background and time lines as well as the community engagement process as the project progresses.

Background

In 2020, the Municipality of Port Hope engaged CIMA+ to complete the design of infrastructure improvements on Walton Street from Mill Street west to Church Street. The project will address important underground infrastructure improvements to aging watermains and sanitary sewers as well as undersized storm sewers. The need to replace underground infrastructure, while challenging, will create opportunities for roadway reconstruction and streetscape improvements to be integrated into the project.

Project timelines

The design portion of the project began in 2020 and is scheduled to conclude in the fall of 2021. Construction is planned to occur in multiple stages beginning in 2022 (or later), pending future budget approvals.

Purpose of public consultation

Walton Street is a key part of the community’s economic, social, and cultural fImage of Walton Street with carsabric as well as an important link in the transportation system. The purpose of the public consultation is to share information about the project, hear your concerns, and receive your feedback.

Through upcoming public consultations, we will:

  • Explain the need for the project
  • Present the preliminary design
  • Describe design options and ask for your feedback
  • Outline next steps for the project
  • Let you know how you can get involved
