  • Beautification
  • Mixture of Modes
  • Sustainable Landscape
  • Lighting and Furniture
  • Safety
  • Visibility

FAQ's

Q: Why is the Town revitalizing Westridge Road?

A: Town Council has designated the beautification of the Highway corridor as a priority within the Town Council's Strategic Plan. Following on this, both the recently held Emerging Opportunities (June 2019) and the Downtown and Highway Workshop (Sept 16 & 17) confirmed that residents and business owners are concerned that currently motors travelling the Highway 1 corridor are unaware of what Strathmore has to offer and would like to see as part of the transformation of the corridor, lighting, signage and landscaping that would encourage motorists to stop and take advantage of Town amenities to shop or enjoy Town parks, ect.

The project also is a part of the Town's asset management plan with regaurds to the road structure renewel and utility replacements. These imrpovements would reduce maitenance costs and increase acceptable level of service in terms of road user comfort.

Q: How long will the project take?
A: Design services have been contracted for 2019. Construction is anticipated to be initiated in 2020.
Q: How will businessses and resident be affected?
A: No impact to businesses during the design phase. However, it is anticipated that there will be road closures during the underground installations of Sanitary and Water as well as road reconstruction. A schedule will be drafted and shared at a later point in the project with a minimized time frame to ensure little impact to businesses.
