Current Projects

PKS142: Innisfil Recreation Complex Change Room Flooring Replacement


Project Justification

The existing rubber flooring that is located in the arena change rooms and hallways leading to the ice pads has reached the end of its useful life and requires replacement. The rubber flooring provides for both user safety and equipment protection when accessing the ice rinks. In addition, the rubber flooring in the Fitness change rooms also require replacement.

Current Status

  • The flooring is scheduled to be replaced in the summer of 2020.

PKS348: IRC North Parking Lot Repairs


Project Justification

The existing parking lot north of the IRC has shown rapid deterioration in recent years and is in a noticeable state of disrepair. Though the priority to improve this parking lot was scheduled in the short term, staff recommended the advancement of additional repairs to better align with the construction and grand opening of the Rizzardo Health & Wellness Centre (RHWC).

Current Status

Construction of the North IRC Parking Lot Repairs is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020.

PKS37: Town Campus – Walking Trails


Project Justification

The Town Campus has been identified through the Trails Master Plan as an area of growth to create accessible connections throughout the Town. In collaboration with the Rotary Club, the trails on the Town Campus aim to be AODA compliant, multi-use with the future ability to connect the various facilities on the Town Campus. This trail also contributes to the broader scale helping to connect 7th Line with other trails being planned that include Innisfil Beach Road trail into Alcona, future trail identified on Yonge Street (County Road 4), and the multiuse trail on 7th Line.

Current Status

  • Construction of the 2020 Town Campus – Walking Trails is scheduled to take place during the summer/ fall of 2020.
  • The 2019 Town Campus Trail is located just in front of Kempenfelt Bay School and the South IRC Soccer Fields and is currently under construction. They are scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2020

RDSOT13: Adams Rd & Simcoe Blvd – Replace Stairs with AODA Compliant Ramp


Project Justification

There is a substantial grade difference between Simcoe Boulevard and Adams Road in Alcona.

Currently, pedestrian traffic between the two streets is accommodated by a nine step concrete staircase, with no provisions made for wheelchairs or other assisted mobility devices. The existing stairs do not comply with current Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards. Staff propose removing the existing staircase, and replacing it with an AODA-compliant ramp.

Current Status

Construction of the AODA compliant ramp is scheduled to take place during the summer of 2020.

PKS139: Town Campus – Drainage Improvements


Project Justification

As a result of the Town Campus Drainage Study completed in 2017, construction improvements were recommended in order to maintain and improve existing stormwater infrastructure on the campus.

This project includes improvements to the Town Hall parking lot that is inclusive of a low impact development (LID) feature, improvements to the storm pond outlet that is located behind Town Hall and storm pond improvements to the South IRC stormwater management pond (brought forward as a part of DSR-089-18) in 2018.

Current Status

The South IRC Stormwater Management Pond is currently under construction and will be completed in the Spring of 2020

RDS61: Cross St. – 7th Line to Kennedy Rd – Bridge Replacement & Resurfacing


Project Justification

This structure is undersized for the watercourse which it crosses. The bridge cannot pass larger return period flood flows, and there have been flooding complaints upstream.

The Environmental Assessment for Watercourse No. 4, approved by Committee of the Whole Recommendation 331.06, recommended replacing the bridge with a structure that provides increased flow capacity. The proposed 2017 7th Line – 20th Sideroad to Lake Simcoe EA project will confirm the required flow capacity.

Current Status

The Town is currently in the design phase for potential construction improvements of the Cross Street bridge. Simultaneously, the Town will update an outdated Environmental Assessment to determine if the preferred alternative remains similar. From there, the Town will pick a preferred construction improvement alternative for design.

Construction was originally scheduled for Summer 2019; however, the preliminary design recommendations are undergoing review and a recommended improvement has not yet been selected

PKS213: Trail Program –Implement Trails Master Plan


Project Justification

This program implements the recommendations of the Trails Master Plan to better connect the residents of Innisfil as well as to connect the broader community through Innisfil.

Current Status

  • Bicycle Lanes: Bicycle lanes and additional pavement markings have been painted on Jans Boulevard, Webster Boulevard, Leslie Drive, and Anna Maria Avenue. The paint however was not painted as per our contract drawings. The Town is looking to have the lines repainted in the Spring/ Summer of 2020.
  • Jack Crescent Trail will be constructed in 2020.
  • Centennial Park Trail will be designed and constructed in 2020.
  • Pedestrian crossing at Corm St and Westmount is being designed and constructed in 2020.
  • The Town is also looking into creating a crossing at the TransCanada Trail located on Queen St in
    Cookstown. Potential design in 2020 as this needs to be approved by the MTO.

RDS266: Various Roads – Drainage Improvement Program


Project Justification

With increased surface water occurring, drainage is becoming a significantly larger issue that the Town must plan for in order to mitigate varying levels of liability. Many of these areas are directly adjacent to Lake Simcoe and therefore flooding in these areas also affects the water quality of the watershed.

Drainage improvement evaluations were completed for various roads in 2018. Though drainage improvement evaluations have been completed for these areas outlined above, Town staff have further re-prioritized the need for drainage improvements and developed a new prioritization list as outlined below based on operational need, Minimum Maintenance Standards and consultation with area residents.

Current Status

  • Simcoe Blvd Drainage Improvements: Construction took place and was completed in the summer/ fall 2019.
  • Park Rd Drainage Improvements: Currently in design and is scheduled to be constructed in the summer of 2021.
  • Tall Tree Lane, Bon Secour Crescent, Goodfellow Avenue, Buchanan Street, and Crystal Beach Road Drainage Improvements:  Design of this project will begin in 2020.
  • This project will continue to improve drainage issues throughout the Town beyond 2020.
