Downtown Fenelon reconstruction to begin March 2021

Downtown Fenelon Falls

Fenelon Falls Downtown Colborne Street

Kawartha Lakes – Residents and businesses in Fenelon Falls can expect to see movement on downtown reconstruction the first week of March as crews begin to prepare. The project, which involves a reconstruction of both underground infrastructure and streetscape design along Colborne Street, will be done in phases, with an anticipated completion date of late fall 2021.

Kawartha Lakes has awarded the construction contract to Coco Paving Inc. The goal of the project is to not disrupt Fenelon Falls during the busier summer months and allow full access to the businesses in the area.

Phase one of the project will occur between March and May 2021, with work coming to a halt May long weekend. Phase two will resume Labour Day weekend in September and will continue into late fall, until the project is complete.

Although no full road closures are planned, detours will be set up to control traffic flow while the crews are on site. Parking will also be restricted as crews will need access to additional road space for the large equipment required. In the upcoming weeks, residents and businesses can expect to see machines arriving, markings and fencing being placed around the work sites.

Municipal staff will be visiting businesses along the construction zone to notify them of any upcoming disruptions to service (such as water access) and respond to any concerns they may have while the work is being completed. Weekly updates will be made available on the Downtown Fenelon Reconstruction project page, along with project contact information and background design details from past public meetings.
