Williams Parkway Redevelopment Image Body Content Project Timeline2006 - 2011: Environmental AssessmentAs part of the 2004, 2009, and 2015 Transportation Master Plans and the 10-Year Capital Roads Program, Williams Parkway was identified to be widened to six lanes from North Park Drive to McLaughlin Road. Beginning in 2006, City staff conducted a Class Environmental Assessment which evaluated, and ultimately recommended, a six-lane widening and a new noise wall on Williams Parkway. The study included two public meetings and was completed in 2011.2012 - 2018: Noise Wall Detailed DesignBased on the approved Environmental Assessment, detailed designs for the Williams Parkway noise wall were completed between 2012 and 2018. When a road is planned to be widened to six lanes, as per the Noise Policy approved by Council, a noise wall is recommended for installation to mitigate traffic noise for neighbouring homes.2018 - 2020: Noise Wall ConstructionNoise wall installation began ahead of the proposed six-lane road widening to minimize noise from the future road construction. The Notices of Construction below were delivered to the affected addresses from West of Harridine Road to East of North Park Drive: Noise Wall Notice 1 Noise Wall Notice 2 Noise wall construction was completed in June 2020.2019 - 2020: Project Review RequestedIn Fall 2019, City Council requested a review of the road widening recommendation as Council priorities changed. Detailed design for the six-lane road widening was paused at 60% completion. On June 15 2020, four road construction options were presented at a City Council workshop.
