Sidewalk construction along Broadway commencing shortly

July 14, 2022   ·   0 Comments

The Town of Orangeville is about to start a sidewalk renewal program in the downtown core. 

The initial phase of the “Broadway Bricks” project will commence July 18 and involve the temporary removal of trees from sidewalks (except those near restaurant patios) and decommissioning some unused underground water services. 

Sidewalk replacement – with new concrete and bricks – will be completed in sections of the downtown, with an approximate duration of two weeks or less for each one.  Businesses will remain accessible during construction and sidewalks will remain open. Parking will also remain available. When concrete is being poured, there may be short delays in accessing storefronts or some businesses may opt to use alternate access points, if available, during those brief periods. Restaurants, with boulevard café permits, will be provided with notice two weeks in advance of construction, and will be in a subsequent phase.

Broadway Bricks is an infrastructure and accessibility improvement project for Orangeville’s vibrant downtown area. Project features include a water refill station, a bike racks, safer walking surfaces, more benches, recycling/garbage stations, electrical resources for musicians and festivals, a bike repair station, tree maintenance (removal and replacement), and increased accessibility and inclusion. 

The contractor for the Broadway Bricks project is Aqua Tech. They will try to minimize disruption, working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday. The company will base operations out of the Town-owned lot on First Avenue, north of Town Hall. 

The construction schedule will require some flexibility to provide for weather conditions and any unforeseen situations. Information and the roll-out schedule will be updated regularly at
