Johnston Road Streetscape Revitalization

Construction work for the Johnston Road Streetscape Revitalization Project started in Spring 2018. This project will involve the reconstruction and beautification of Johnston Road’s streetscape, including:

  • New widened sidewalks and convenient crosswalks;
  • Create areas for seating such as outdoor Cafe seating along the newly widened sidewalks;
  • Tree-lined seating areas and green space; and
  • New technologies and planting strategies to allow replaced trees to grow and spread their roots without impacting pedestrian safety, business accessibility, and City Utilities.

We are striving to minimize public impact over the long term and will take this opportunity to simultaneously upgrade the critical water, sewer and street infrastructure which will help increase capacity and improve the reliability of the existing older watermains, sanitary sewers and storm sewers to better serve this growing neighbourhood.

The Johnston Road Revitalization Project will improve accessibility, safety and ease of use, and revitalize Johnston Road as White Rock’s commercial and cultural ‘high street’ as well as the gateway into our beautiful City by the Sea!
