MR80 (Old Highway 69)
The City of Greater Sudbury will recommence work on the New Sidewalk Installation on the south side of Old Highway 69 (MR80), Hanmer, between Glenn Street and Notre Dame Avenue.
Construction by the City’s contractor, Interpaving Ltd., will begin in May, 2021 and will be completed by July 2021.
Why is this sidewalk being built?
The City of Greater Sudbury is actively working towards becoming a more pedestrian friendly community. Each year, the City receives a number of requests for sidewalks to be installed throughout the City. In 2017, the City developed a comprehensive and objective tool, the Sidewalk Priority Index, to prioritize locations where sidewalks should be installed, based on a variety of factors, including road classification, speed, and volume, proximity to parks and schools, and number of pedestrian collisions. This section of MR80 is the highest ranked location in the City. When constructed, area residents will have a 4.8 km continuous walkway which runs from Notre Dame Avenue to Desmarais Road and is maintained year round.
