What Is Neighbourhood Renewal?

About the Program

The Neighbourhood Renewal program is part of the Building Great Neighbourhoods initiative. It outlines a cost effective, long-term strategic approach to renew and rebuild roads, sidewalks and streetlights in existing neighbourhoods and collector roadways. The program balances the need to rebuild in some neighbourhoods with a preventive maintenance approach in others.

Types of Neighbourhood Renewal

The types of neighbourhood renewal work vary depending on the state of the roads:

Industrial/Residential Neighbourhoods:

Preventive Maintenance - Roads are resealed to extend their lifespan.

Overlay - Roads are repaved and sidewalk panels treated to eliminate trip hazards.

Reconstruction - Roads are repaved, and streetlights and sidewalks replaced. Neighbourhood Reconstruction is part of the Building Great Neighbourhoods initiative.

    Collector Road Renewal - With priority on bus routes.

    Northeast Road Reconstruction - Replacement of roads with special drainage enhancement and selective concrete repair.

    Benefits
