King Street Reconstruction

A photo of King Street looking north towards the harbour.


The Town has been planning the revitalization of King Street from Bayshore Drive to Yonge Street for a number of years. Tatham Engineering was retained to complete the detailed designed work required for this project which resulted in a complete reconstruction of King St.

The reconstruction includes but isn't limited to:

  • New Sanitary System
  • New Storm System
  • New Watermain
  • New Road alignment and parking configurations
  • Reconfiguration as a flexible street design with movable bollards
  • New traffic signals
  • New pedestrian crossings
  • New landscape features

The Town of Midland has a rich history and King Street being the focal point for the town plays a large role in this. This rejuvenation project will help maintain this history as well update the downtown to today's standards and solidify Midland as a leader in North Simcoe and a top tourist destination.

We understand that Midland Avenue has been difficult to use during the re-paving work, however it should be completed today (September 23) which should allow for a smoother flow of traffic around the work zone. If drivers continue to cut through this lot, a barrier will be installed.
