Winston Road Reconstruction & Streetscaping

With the influx of residential units, the Town of Grimsby expedited the upgrading of road and infrastructure services to meet the demand and provide safe mobility conditions for all users, including cyclists, pedestrians and vehicles of all sizes. This project won the OPWA 2019 Public Works Project of the Year award in the Transportation category: $2M – $10M.

CIMA+ completed the reconstruction, widening and urbanization for 800 m of an existing rural area along Winston Road in the Town of Grimsby, from west of Hunter Road to the east of Casablanca Boulevard.

CIMA+ provided “turnkey” engineering and landscape architecture services on this project, including the preparation of specifications and contract documents for tendering.

CIMA+’s comprehensive streetscape and landscape design considered the integration of the roadway with adjacent land developments to create a “complete street”. To ensure a seamless and aesthetically pleasing corridor, the streetscape design included decorative concrete pathways and sidewalks, decorative crosswalks, raised and continuous planting beds, street furniture, and parallel parking facilities. The design also highlighted detailed grading designs, bicycle lane and parking buffers, pedestrian crossings compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), and barrier-free parking stalls to address safety and ease of use for all along this highly urbanized corridor.
