About the Project

Broadway Bricks is an infrastructure and accessibility improvement project for Orangeville’s vibrant downtown area. To support local merchants during the summer, the work involving outdoor restaurant patios is scheduled to take place after Labour Day, 2022.

Sidewalk replacement – with new concrete and bricks – will be completed in sections of the downtown, with an approximate duration of two weeks or less for each one.  Businesses will remain accessible during construction and sidewalks will remain open. Parking will also remain available. When concrete is being poured, there may be short delays in accessing storefronts or some businesses may opt to use alternate access points, if available, during those brief periods. Restaurants, with boulevard café permits, will be provided with notice two weeks in advance of construction, and will be in a subsequent phase. 

The project will include the following (to be confirmed):

  • Improved access to downtown storefronts
  • Safer walking surfaces
  • More benches
  • Recycling/garbage stations
  • Water refill stations
  • Electrical resources for musicians and festivals
  • Tree maintenance, including removal and replacement

The contractor for the Broadway Bricks project is Aqua Tech which will make every effort to minimize disruption, working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday. The company will base operations out of the Town-owned lot on First Avenue, north of Town Hall.
