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

The rejuvenation 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.

Remaining work and final touches to begin on King Street Rejuvenation project in Spring 2021.

Work will include:

  1. Intersection crosswalk installation at Bayshore Drive, Dominion Avenue, Hugel Avenue, Elizabeth Street and Yonge Street. Mid-block crosswalk installation between Hugel Avenue and Elizabeth Street and between Elizabeth Street and Yonge Street.
  2. All plantings within the construction limits.
  3. Unit paver and concrete walkway works at the northwest corner of Yonge Street and King Street.
  4. Bicycle rack, tree guard and bench installation.
  5. Rejuvenation work within Neezhoday Park (adjacent to the Midland Public Library), including new unit pavers and concrete sidewalk.
  6. Restoration works within the Alley adjacent to 284 King Street.

Weather permitting, Arnott Construction is scheduled to mobilize in early April and expect to be complete by the end of May.

  • Updated Road Closure Map

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Please be advised that we have updated the road closure map. This updated map more-clearly indicates where drivers can access the parking lots in this area, and also shows where the pedestrian walkways (sidewalks) are throughout the area. For a PDF version of the map click here.

    The Town of Midland would like to ask that drivers not cut through the Midland Harbour parking lot to avoid the road closure on Bayshore Drive. 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.
