The Proposed Project

The Francis Street Upgrade project involves extending the Storm Water Drainage system, adding Curbs and sidewalk, and installing a prefabricated steel pedestrian bridge across Snake Stream.

The existing Francis Street storm water drainage system is made up of a mixture of open ditch, driveway culverts, and underground piping. This project is to replace the open ditch/driveway culverts with an underground drainage system, complete with concrete curbs and sidewalk. Approximately 100m of Pipeline Road (Crush Rock surface) will be regraded and surfaced with 3 coats of chipseal.
