Project Description

The County of Elgin in partnership with the Municipality of West Elgin is undertaking the reconstruction of Furnival Road from the northerly village limits to the former railway corridor, and Queens Line from the westerly village limits to Furnival Road.

The project implements a “Complete Streets” philosophy to accommodate users of all transportation modes and abilities.  Guided by the Municipality of West Elgin’s Community Improvement Plan and Streetscape Master Plan, the roadway will have pedestrian friendly spaces that will also accommodate future cycling facilities in accordance with the Elgin-St. Thomas Cycling Master Plan.  Both roadways will remain a two-lane cross section.  Subtle and strategically placed curb extensions will be installed within the village business district to provide protective shelter for resident and visitor on-street parking, improved integrated pedestrian connectivity, and represents a traffic calming measure drastically improving traffic safety and flow along this vital transportation corridor.

The project will include replacement of stormwater sewers, road, sidewalk, and the installation of new standalone decorative street lighting and boulevards.
