District road restoration and improvements

Road restoration and planned District capital road improvement works that were temporarily put on hold to accommodate the Five Creeks Stormwater Flood Protection Project are now scheduled to begin this fall and are expected to take six to eight weeks to complete. These works include cycling and pedestrian safety improvements including sidewalk and curb upgrades, pavement markings, sightline improvements, bicycle lanes, accessibility improvements and installation of speed humps.
