The reconstruction of Peel Street has been identified as a project in the Town’s Development Charges Background Study (DCBS) for some time. The DCBS originally called for an Urban road cross-section with sidewalk, street illumination and street trees, but upon further review it was determined that the current road standards would not meet the project’s goals. A hybrid Rural/Urban Road with a 2.7m wide multi-use trail running parallel for pedestrians and cyclists was recommended for the reconstruction. 

Preliminary designs have provided the Town with a flexible outline for the project in the future. Features of the reconstruction will include an improvement to profile of Peel Street, which will improve sightlines for drivers and pedestrians. A replacement of the pavement structure was also recommended to meet current standards. 

A revised budget request sheet was included in the 2023 Proposed Town Budget for council consideration. This has been updated to account for current construction costs, and has updated the proposed project scope to include a pedestrian bridge over the Little Beaver River. The Final Design for the project is expected to be completed in 2023 with construction to follow in 2024.

Why Now?

The Town is moving forward on the reconstruction of Peel Street as local development nears completion.
