Williams Parkway Widening and Noise Wall

When a road is planned to be widened to six lanes, it is standard City practice to install a noise wall to mitigate traffic noise for neighbouring homes. Noise wall installation began in 2018, ahead of the proposed road widening. 

The decision to widen Williams Parkway was revisted and reviewed, with opportunities for additional public engagement, from November 2019 to November 2020.
