Phase 1 Construction - Fall 2019

Arnott Construction will begin preparing the site on September 9th and construction will begin on September 16th. King Street will be closed from north of Bayshore Drive to Bay Street. Sections of Bay Street, both east and west of King Street, will also be closed. A detailed map is provided below. Pedestrian access will be maintained to the store fronts during construction.

Project Background

The Town has been planning the revitalization of King Street from Bayshore Drive to Yonge Street for a number of years. Tatham Engineering was retained to complete the detailed designed work required for this project which resulted in a complete reconstruction of King St.

The reconstruction includes but isn't limited to:

  • New Sanitary System

  • New Storm System

  • New Watermain

  • New Road alignment and parking configurations

  • Reconfiguration as a flexible street design with movable bollards

  • New traffic signals

  • New pedestrian crossings

  • New landscape features

The Town of Midland has a rich history and King Street being the focal point for the town plays a large role in this. This rejuvenation project will help maintain this history as well update the downtown to today's standards and solidify Midland as a leader in North Simcoe and a top tourist destination.​
