Council approves sidewalk projects

New sidewalks are in the works for stretches of roads in four Woolwich settlements this summer, part of a $169,000 plan approved this week by Woolwich council.

Conestogo will see the most work, including a new walkway on the south side of Sawmill Road between Northfield Drive and Evening Star Lane, for which the Region of Waterloo will pick up the $16,800 tab.

At $51,100, the long sidewalk on the south side of Golf Course Road, adjacent to Priddle Park, will be the largest of this year’s projects. The work will link up with Sawmill Road.

A walkway is also slated for a portion of Flax Mill Drive. That project has a budget of $12,000.

St. Jacobs will see two new sidewalks this year, on the west side of Water Street between Hachborn Street and Abener’s Lane ($8,000) and on Hachborn Street’s north side, running east of Queensway Drive ($18,000).

In Breslau, the township will spend $24,000 to build a sidewalk on the west side of Joseph Street, between Shields and Dolman streets.

For Elmira, the sole project is slated for Park Avenue West adjacent to the ball diamond and park west of Snyder Avenue. The budget for that work is set at $35,000.
