This project involves an infrastructure renewal and road reconstruction on Campbell Street between Maple Street and Hurontario Street, and on Lockhart Road between Hurontario Street and Brock Crescent.
The following is a general description of the work to be constructed:
- The replacement of approximately 285m of existing watermain and associated appurtenances;
- The installation of left turn lanes on Lockhart Road and Campbell Street including the upgrade of the existing traffic signal which now includes accessible features such as tactile indicator plates at the curbs for those with visual impairments, accessible push buttons, and an audio system for those with hearing impairments;
- The widening for left turn lanes and reconstruction of approximately 300m of existing roadway and restoration of all associated disturbed areas, including sidewalk, curb and surface elements within the boulevard;
- The replacement of existing traffic signal control infrastructure at the intersection of Hurontario Street and Campbell Street/Lockhart Road; and
- The installation of a sidewalk on the east side of Hurontario from Lockhart Drive to Tracey Lane. Trees will be planted along Hurontario and other areas around Town to compensate for the existing trees removed and planting will occur this fall or next spring based on nursery availability.
Temporary road closures are anticipated on both Lockhart and Campbell Streets during construction. Construction is expected to commence summer 2020 and was completed ahead of schedule in September 2020.
This project involves an infrastructure renewal and road reconstruction of Napier Street between Hume Street and Dillon Drive. The following is a general description of the work to be constructed:

- The installation of storm sewer and associated structures;
- The replacement of watermain and associated appurtenances;
- The reconstruction of existing roadway and restoration of all associated disturbed areas; and
- Installation of sidewalk on the west side of the road.

This project involves moving the traffic signals from the Home Depot entrance to Third Street and High Street intersection. The Third Street and High Street intersection is to be reconstructed to include left turn lanes on all approaches.
The timing of this project is dependent on the development project west of the Third Street and High Street intersection.
An Intersection Pedestrian Signal, a conventional red-amber-green light, will be installed at the intersection of Huron Street and Niagara Street to allow for a pedestrian crossing and will be located at the east leg of the Huron/Niagara intersection.
To be determined.
The Black Ash Creek Sewage Pumping Station is located just off Balsam Street (Hwy 26), west of the Canadian Tire plaza, and adjacent to the Black Ash Trail. Construction of the new sewage pumping station was started in 2019 and is almost complete. The new facility includes above grade and below grade infrastructure.This station will service a large portion of the west end of Collingwood and has been upgraded and increased in capacity to accommodate growth. The existing station had reached the end of its service life and was a constant source of maintenance and repair requirements for Town operations staff. Once the new station has been commissioned the old station will be demolished and the trail system fully restored.
The Elevated Water Tower Repairs are located on Hume Street adjacent to the YMCA. A condition assessment was completed in the spring of 2020. This type of assessment is completed every three to five years and resulted in several recommended repairs and maintenance items which were tendered as a separate contract. Repairs included upgrades to safety equipment, structural repairs to concrete bases and the steel structure and some repainting of certain areas. Work is scheduled to be completed in October. These repairs and maintenance items will ensure this asset remains in service.
The Minnesota Twin Storm Sewer Replacement commenced in the summer of 2020 and Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed by the end of December 2020. The sewer consists of two 1800mm x 1000mm corrugated steel arch culverts that convey storm water from the Minnesota Drain, accepting flow from a significant portion of Town – over 200 hectares – and is an extremely important piece of storm drainage infrastructure. It runs through numerous properties including the Adult Learning Center, the OPP lands, the Leisure Time Club and the Harbour Edge property (40 Huron Street) before outletting into a ditch at Huron Street that eventually flows into Georgian Bay. Phase 2 will be completed in 2021.
The Walnut / Cameron trail pedestrian bridge, near the extension of Cameron Street west, beside the Walnut Trail, is being replaced as it has exceeded its life expectancy and is not AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) accessible. Work will commence in November for approximately 30 days.
The Harbourview Park Boardwalk replacement tender for reconstruction was awarded in spring 2020. The rebuilding of the burnt section is complete (work was stalled over the summer due to low supply of pressure treated wood). The reconstruction of the lookout section is expected to be completed by the spring of 2021, dependent on the lumber supply. The lookout section is past its life expectancy, resulting in warping and uneven surfaces.
The Sunset Point Playground, the Enviropark Playground, will undergo a complete rebuild in 2021. This fall, a tender was awarded for the installation of a washroom facility on the south side of St. Lawrence Street and infrastructure works to support the washroom and future playground features. Over the winter, the design will be finalized and work is expected to start in the spring for the new inclusive playground.
The A’wen Water Park project, located at Harbourview Park, is broken up into several sub-projects: infrastructure installation, water park design & construction, and parking lot expansion. The water park design is currently underway and the infrastructure installation tender was put out to market. The resulting bid was over budget and will be re-issued with construction scheduled for spring 2021. The tender for the water park construction will be put out to market in the winter of 2020/2021 with construction expected to start late spring/summer of 2021. The parking lot expansion is being requested in the 2021 capital budget with design and tender documents starting after budget approval. The survey results from the 2016 Waterfront Masterplan resulted in the number one ‘wished’ item to be a splash pad or water park.
