SOHO Community Plan Streetscape Improvements

Similar to the Horton Street Reconstruction project completed in 2012, this work includes the integration and investment of streetscape improvements along the Colborne street corridor. These enhancements coincide with the June 2011 Council approved SoHo Community Improvement Plan and the Old Victoria Hospital Lands

Secondary Plan approved in June 2014. The improvements will facilitate and bring both aesthetic and functional changes to the area and is the second of many projects to come in the SoHo area that implement the vision for the SoHo Community while providing an opportunity to begin changing the character of the area.

Traffic Management

Traffic studies have determined that the signalized intersection at Colborne and Grey Streets is un-necessary and will be converted to a three-way stop as part of this project. In addition, to facilitate construction and property owner access, Grey Street from Waterloo to Maitland and South Street from Waterloo to Maitland will temporarily be converted from one-way streets to two-way streets.
