At the beginning of the reconstruction project, the Town identified areas in Thornbury with infrastructure that is approaching 100 years old. The first two projects considered for infrastructure replacement were the Elma Street & Alice Street area, and the Victoria Street & Louisa Street area.

Through the preliminary engineering process, the Town identified that the two project areas were similar in nature. As a result, the two independent projects were combined and are now referred to as the "Thornbury West Phase 1 Reconstruction Project."

Final engineering work, which is the process where the design is completed and construction takes place, was awarded for the Elma Street & Alice Street area in 2019. However, the project faced unanticipated delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Construction will be divided into Phase 1A and Phase 1B to allow more time for the Town to review options for tree retention.

Phase 1A - Construction in 2022/2023

  • Victoria Street
  • Louisa Street, from Elma Street to Beaver Street
  • Beaver Street
  • 100m of Alice Street east of Victoria Street

Phase 1B - Construction in 2024 (est.)

  • Elma Street
  • Lorne Street
  • Park Lane
  • Louisa Street, from Bruce Street to Elma Street
  • Remaining portion of Alice Street

Why Now?

Existing infrastructure requires replacement due to multiple watermain breaks, sewer deterioration, infiltration and excessive road cracking.
