About Beckwith Street Phase 2 Reconstruction

Beckwith Street Phase 2 Reconstruction will commence on, or around April 4, 2022. Thomas Cavanagh Construction Limited has been awarded the contract to complete the project.

The project will result in the full reconstruction of Beckwith Street North between Russell Street and Elmsley Street North with improvements including:

  • Replacement of existing underground infrastructure (water main, sanitary sewers, storm sewers, and municipal services)
  • Full depth road reconstruction including concrete curbing and concrete sidewalks with accessibility features, three vehicular travel lanes, and two parallel parking lanes
  • A newly configured cycle-track (fully separated) meeting the objectives for a complete street design.
  • Beckwith Street /Elmsley Street intersection reconfiguration including traffic/pedestrian signal infrastructure replacement meeting Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards, as well as staged cycling infrastructure on Elmsley Street for future upgrades.
  • Installation of a new Pedestrian Crossover (PXO), crossing of Beckwith Street immediately south of Church Street
  • Decorative LED pedestrian and street lighting
  • Landscaping (trees, shrubs, and perennial plantings)
  • Placement of new street furniture


Thomas Cavanagh Construction will be permitted to close Beckwith Street between Russell Street and Elmsley Street North. North and southbound traffic will be detoured via Chambers Street to Elmsley Street and Elmsley Street to Chambers Street respectively to get around the road closure. Additional detours will be in place for Jasper Avenue, Old Slys Road and Queen Street to accommodate larger commercial through traffic.

The project is expected to be completed in September 2022.

How can I access Town Hall Reception during construction?

Due to construction activities, access to Town Hall via Beckwith Street is temporarily out of service. Visitors to Town Hall are directed to access Town Hall reception via the Church Street entrance.

Please note that all other entrances to Town Hall are staff entrances and not accessible to the public. Visitors to Town Hall arriving by vehicle are advised to use adjacent on-street parking, or the Town Hall parking lot (entrances off of Elmsley Street North and Church Street East) if space is available.
