Making Over Main Street

After nearly 40 years, we're embarking on another project in the Downtown to revitalize Main Street. The last major renovations to Main Street were completed during the 1980s and much of the surface infrastructure has reached the end of its life and requires replacement. This includes interlocking brick roadways and sidewalks, curbs, and gutters, retaining walls, stairs, railings, benches, and lighting.  

The first phase of the reconstruction began in May of 2023. The work will take place on Main Street from Sherbrooke Street to Cassells Street and on Ferguson Street from Main Street to Oak Street.

Work will include an enhanced streetscape treatment to better integrate the downtown with the waterfront. Elements such as concrete accents, new furnishings, festoon lighting, signage, banners, and new trees will create an enhanced pedestrian experience and contribute to retail vibrancy.
