Albert Street Reconstruction

City of Waterloo

Size: 350 metres | Value: $2.2 Million | Completion: 2019 | Location: Waterloo, ON

Civil Engineering

This project was a reconstruction of approximately 350 metres of road on Albert Street and Princess Street West from Erb Street to Bridgeport Road in the City of Waterloo. Our Civil Engineering Team provided design and construction services to the City for preliminary and detailed design, including corridor/grading design and underground service design. We coordinated with Waterloo North Hydro to design underground hydro civil infrastructure.

 

The project was initiated to address the deteriorating pavement conditions for this section of the roadway by replacing the ageing sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and watermain. Overall, by improving the existing intersection configuration, it provided an opportunity to enhance cycling and pedestrian facilities within the corridor which promotes transportation choice for local commuters in accordance with The City of Waterloo’s Transportation Master Plan.

 

While Albert Street remains a one-way street for motorists, two-way cycling access was provided through the construction of a new contraflow bike lane along with a shared lane for both motorists and cyclists. Improved separation between pedestrians and vehicles was provided through increased boulevard space and the addition of on-street parking.  

 

Knowing the constraints of the project area, our municipal team worked diligently to complete a sound design for this innovative corridor while ensuring that impacts to residents, businesses, and mature trees were effectively mitigated.
