As you may know, I have been working closely with city staff, local developers and Councillor Darouze to help advance infrastructure for Findlay Creek and Leitrim. Although there were no plans to widen Bank Street before 2024, we have successfully been able to advance the first part of this project including the design for the widening as well as the intersection modification component – with construction set to begin next year.
I am pleased to report that we are now in the 90% design stage, which is a significant milestone for the project. Last week updated construction cost estimates and cost estimates for the land acquisition component of the project were submitted. The Leitrim Landowner group will be submitting their Front Ending Agreement to Committee and Council in early 2019.
Please find below the proposed design of the Bank Street & Leitrim Road intersection modifications.
