Frequently asked questions

Learn more about construction projects
How can I be informed about ongoing construction/ traffic interruptions?

The City provides an interactive map (Renew London) which is updated with information on any transportation impacts. Information is provided on each transportation impact and a City employee that can be contacted for more information.

Renew London

What guidelines does the City use when designing these road projects?

The City follows the Complete Streets Design model.

A complete street is an environment that is safe and accessible for all road users. The City wants roads to meet everyone’s needs. Streets will feature high-quality pedestrian spaces and integrate seamlessly with transit, cycling networks, and motorists. 

The engineering team will design roads that connect everyone and support active and green transportation.

For more information, please consult our Complete Streets Design manual.

Will I be able to cycle through the construction area?

This depends on the project. All road traffic detours will take bicycles into account, and in some cases crews will set up cycling-specific signage to help cyclists navigate the construction. If possible, bike lanes will remain open in the project area.

How is accessibility addressed in the construction zone?

The City is being proactive with our pedestrian accessibility measures and actively collecting feedback related to the construction zone. While the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) does not lay out specific requirements for construction zones, the City does make every effort to maintain a safe and passable route for all users.

Why Doesn’t the City Work 24/7?

The City has to balance the desire to complete work quickly with the interests of people living nearby who would be impacted by construction taking place late into the evening or overnight.

Even when neighbouring residents would not be affected by construction after 7:00 p.m., the City must also consider the additional cost.  There can be a significant cost premium to work extra hours meaning that fewer projects might be completed for the same amount of money.

Are Projects Typically Completed on Time and Under Budget?

Most work is completed on time and on (or even under) budget. In recent years, a large percentage of the construction projects managed by the City were completed on time and on budget. 

But sometimes there are good reasons why they might take longer than expected to complete. Schedules are set before the work begins, and once construction starts, crews might discover issues at the site that were unknown and unexpected.  The schedule has to be adjusted to allow time to do work that wasn’t originally anticipated.

It’s also important to remember that the City isn’t the only organization that is doing work in the roadway. In fact, the City encourages utilities and other agencies to plan their work immediately preceding or following the City’s work. While that type of planning and coordination can produce cost-savings, and reduce the disruption caused by construction, there are times when the work that is being done ahead of the City isn’t finished on time. In that case, the City must adjust its construction schedule to recognize that sometimes delays are beyond its control.

Is the City Responsible for all Work Completed on City Property?

While a significant amount of work is completed by the City such as underground construction on watermains and sewers, work on the surface involving construction of roads and sidewalks, and above-ground work on traffic signals, a large amount of work is non-City work and is completed by utilities and telecom companies.  Because those organizations share the roadway with the City, their work can often lead to the temporary closure of lanes of traffic.

The City makes every effort to manage the timing of non-City construction, but it cannot prevent that work from taking place. Therefore, the City works closely with those organizations to encourage them to stage or bundle their work with other construction that is planned in the same location.
