Adelaide Street North Underpass
The City of London is reconstructing Adelaide Street North from Elias Street to 80m north of McMahen Street, as well as Central Avenue from William Street to Elizabeth Street. The project will add an underpass at the Canadian Pacific Rail (CPR) tracks, as well as provide nearby intersection improvements and active transportation connections, with wide multi-use paths on both sides of Adelaide Street North.
Improvements to this civic boulevard rail crossing will provide improved pedestrian, cyclist, and transit user amenities consistent with Complete Streets principles. This project will directly improve safety and reliability by eliminating the at-grade crossing, reduce cut-through traffic in nearby neighborhoods and improve active transportation and quality of life. There are also benefits associated with improving emergency service and transit reliability associated with the current at-grade crossing.
The City is planning to maintain two lanes of traffic during most of the construction period through a road detour to the east of Adelaide Street.
Construction started in April 2022 and is anticipated to be finished in fall 2024, with some planned carry-over work in summer 2025.
Construction will take place along Adelaide Street North from Elias Street to 80m North of McMahen Street, as well as Central Avenue from William Street to Elizabeth Street and sections of the other side streets.
