Last year Second Avenue received a much-needed facelift. This summer festival crowds will enjoy the sights of delicious “lollypop trees”, beautiful baskets hanging from elegant lamp posts, while relaxing on fine furniture features, situated at each corner plaza. New road top and wider side walks also add functional appeal to the new streetscape.
The size of parking stalls will be adjusted this summer. Please watch our website and social media for updates on the line painting schedule.
Third Avenue is set to receive a similar face-lift this summer.
After an extensive public engagement campaign, we are proud to launch the Third Avenue Streetscape Final Design Concept.
The project is now in tender. Tender is the process where governments invite bids for large projects that must be submitted within a finite deadline. Once the tender is selected, construction on Third Avenue is set to commence early June. Construction will not occur June 16th as the Newsy Neighbour is holding an event Downtown. There will not be any major road closures and businesses will remain open during the construction phase. The goal is to have most of the construction complete for The Strathmore Stampede.
