2022 Construction and parks projects

In 2022 we will complete work on Dufferin Avenue from King Street to Carrying Place Road. This project includes a permanent lane reduction from four lanes to two, the addition of bike lanes, new asphalt surface and spot repairs to curbs and sidewalks.

Construction is expected to begin mid-summer and conclude in the fall of 2022.

The following roads are scheduled to be surfaced in 2022: 

  • Stockdale Road (from the Highway 401 bridge north for 1.2 km) 
  • Glen Miller Road (between #799 and Hannah Lane)
  • Sidney Street (from Millennium Parkway to Vermilyea Road) 
  • Frankford Road (from River Drive to Collins Road) 
  • Leopold Street (from West Street to Mary Street)
  • Telephone Road (from Tate Road west for 350 m) 
  • O’Neil Crescent

  • Patrick Street (from Fifth Avenue to Fourth Avenue) 
  • Walt Street and Stoney Point Road

This project includes a new mountable curb, asphalt surface and storm outlets for the entire length of Riverside Drive, including a cul-de-sac at the west end. 

Construction is expected to begin mid-summer and conclude in the fall of 2022.

The City of Quinte West has many roads that have a ‘tar and chip’ surface treatment. This surface treatment method is also known as ‘chip seal,’ It is used on rural roads with low to medium volumes of traffic as a more cost-effective and durable alternative to asphalt paving. Tar and chip roads get resurfaced approximately every 7-10 years.

During and after the work has been completed, you can expect to see a higher than average dust amount. The contractor will begin by pulverizing the road. A layer of hot asphalt will be applied, followed by an even layer of angular aggregate stones rolled into place. These stones are further pushed into the asphalt tar by traffic on the road.

Once the work has been completed, we ask that you not sweep the street when the chip is still loose. Residents are also invited to reduce their speed when driving. This will help minimize the disturbance of the stones to ensure an even clean surface and reduce dust.  

Roads scheduled for 2022:

  • Murray Street (from Country Road 40 westerly 1.4 km to Trans Northern Pipeline)
