The City of North Bay has been successful in obtaining funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) to complete the installation of sidewalks, including storm sewer improvements, on numerous streets throughout the City. This program is a multi-year construction project that will benefit the neighbourhoods that do not have existing sidewalks available to offer safe and reliable travel for pedestrians to and from existing transit stops. It provides for the construction of sidewalks on one side of the road in various locations throughout the City that currently have transit routes. To facilitate the installation of the sidewalks the program will also include the installation of storm sewers, curb & gutter, restoration, and partial asphalt paving including granular road base.
In 2021, the City of North Bay is initiating works on new sidewalks throughout the City including partial road paving, partial road base, sidewalk, curb & gutter, and storm sewer on:

construction seasons with the sidewalks on Lindsay, Johnston and Giroux completed this year
