St. Paul Avenue Construction Upgrades to Commence June 5, 2017 

The City of Brantford is committed to fostering a vibrant and livable city and revitalizing the City's aging municipal infrastructure is a fundamental part of this ongoing process.

Beginning June 5th, 2017 the City will be conducting extensive upgrades to St. Paul Avenue from Grand River Avenue to Brant Avenue. The construction work includes replacement of aging storm and sanitary sewers, water mains – some of which are over a century old. The project also includes reconstruction of the roads, gutters, boulevards and sidewalks as well as features to calm speeds and upgraded LED lighting to meet modern illumination standards.

In order to ensure the safety of the public as well as the workers on site, St. Paul Avenue will be CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC for the duration of the project that will be conducted in phases to help reduce disruption of access to the properties along St. Paul Avenue including schools, businesses and the Dufferin Tennis Club. It is expected the project will be completed in December 2017.

324 Grand River Avenue

During this period, the City will also be constructing a new administrative building and vehicle storage facility at 324 Grand River Avenue (at Morrell Street). In addition to the new structures, the project also encompasses related civic works including a sanitary pumping station and relocation of a 900 mm water main.

Brantford Transit Route Changes

Please note that the detour route will also impact Brantford Transit. To accommodate the closures, the current Route #8 will be divided into two routes. The first Route 8 Holmedale will leave the terminal on the hour and on the half hour, servicing the Grand River, Dufferin, and Morrell St. area. The second Route 8 Mayfair will leave the terminal at :15 minutes and :45 minutes after the hour, servicing the Paris Rd., Tolligate, Woodlawn and Brantford Commons area. Please check the City’s website for more information including Revised Route 8 maps at
