The construction of the North Bolton feedermain and elevated water tank is underway and the community will notice a number of road improvements and community enhancements being generated during this Region of Peel project.
Where the feedermain crosses the Humber River, on the west side of the Queen Street bridge, a 3-meter wide pedestrian bridge will conceal the structure and provide a better pedestrian crossing than the narrow walkway now utilized on the bridge.
In 2013/2014 when the Queen Street bridge is rehabilitated the west-side walkway will be decommissioned and the east-side walkway will be enlarged as much as feasible.
As the feedermain proceeds up the west side of the north hill there will be a new sidewalk, complete with lighting and streetscaping, all the way to Cross Country. From Bolton Heights the sidewalk will proceed along the east side of Hwy 50 to Columbia Way.
Also, during construction, the turning radius off Queen Street onto Hickman Street will be improved and more trees added in this area. Next year the municipal parking lot will undergo improvements and a new parkette will appear just southwest of the bridge. Ann Street will be given a make-over as well.
This new elevated water tank and feedermain system, will provide water storage for pressure stabilization, firefighting, and emergencies.
