Project Details

The Town of Collingwood undertook a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed improvements of Hume Street (between Hurontario Street and Pretty River Parkway), and Hurontario Street (from Fourth Street to Sixth Street).  In order to best address roadway capacity and pavement condition in the area, a number of improvement alternatives were considered as part of the study.  Public consultations were conducted on November 22, 2006, and September 15, 2009.  An Environmental Study Report was prepared that documented all aspects of the EA process and presented the recommended design.  The Environmental Study Report was placed on public record for a 30-day period for review and comment, commencing July 23, 2010 and ending August 22, 2010. 

The Environmental Study Report provided a preferred alternative that included a three lane cross section (two through lanes and a shared centre left turn lane) with a multi-use trail on one side of the road and a conventional sidewalk on the other side.  However, as a result of long term monitoring of the performance of existing multi-use trails within the Town of Collingwood completed since the EA, it was determined that on-road bicycle lanes are a more effective solution to many of the problems facing the existing multi-use trails, including conflicts between pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles navigating driveway accesses.  As a result, an EA Addendum was conducted and made available for public review from November 13, 2013, to December 12, 2013.  The revised design has a three lane cross section (two through lanes and a shared centre left turn lane), bicycle lanes, and conventional sidewalks on both sides of the road.

Construction will begin in the spring of 2015, contingent on funding.  Significant utilities (Bell, Rogers, Hydro, and Enbridge) require relocation.  This relocation work has already commenced and will continue into the spring.
