Orillia | by Ian MacLennan  

Reconstruction is seen as the first step in several key projects to revitalize the downtown waterfront area.

The reconstruction of Front Street in Orillia has begun.

“The reconstruction of Front Street is the first step in several key projects over the next few years to help revitalize the downtown waterfront area and prepare for future growth,” said Mayor Steve Clarke. “We look forward to the improvements this project will bring to the Front Street corridor.”

The first of the two-year project takes place between Colborne Street East to Queen Street East.

The design selected by the City is three lanes from Laclie Street to King Street and four lanes from King Street to Queen Street East.

Improvements will also be made to intersections, servicing, sidewalks, boulevards and landscaping.

A minimum of one lane will remain open throughout the construction and all businesses in the area will be open.
