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.

    How will the closure of the Bayshore intersection affect the Midland Transit service?

    Gwen McMartin asked about 2 years ago

    The Transit service will be re-routed around the closure for the duration of the closure. Staff are currently in process of determining the most effective route and once the route is determined it will be posted in multiple locations including this project site as well as the Town website.

    I have been told that construction will begin Fall 2019 at Bayshore/Bay street area. Is there any truth to this?

    Leanne asked about 2 years ago

    Staff will be having a discussion with Council at the August 14th Council meeting on this issue.

    Midland is fortunate to be situated on beautiful Georgian Bay, are there any plans to develop the waterfront? We applaud that Midland is being improved and hopefully become a beautiful up-market town as it should be given, it's appealing location.

    viviergiver asked about 2 years ago

    The Town owns 38 acres of waterfront (the old Unimim lands) and has established a development corporation to develop the site.  The Board for the corporation has just started its work.  Stay tuned for more news.  We'll be putting this up as a project on this engagement site once the project gets going.
