Update: Naughton Avenue detour

The storm culvert is now installed on Gallant Avenue and we are nearing the end of construction in Deep Cove. While work such as creek channel restoration, landscaping, sidewalks and final paving will be completed through December (weather permitting), we expect to be able to fully re-open upper Gallant Avenue to traffic sometime in November.

Once Gallant is ready to be re-opened, the construction detour on Naughton Avenue will be closed and blocked off to all vehicle traffic. Traffic patterns in Deep Cove will return to pre-construction patterns with two-way traffic on upper Gallant Avenue and access into the village core via Deep Cove Road.

Community survey

With scheduled construction coming to an end, we will launch a survey this month to hear from the community about the future of Naughton Avenue. This is in line with our commitment to conduct a more formal public consultation, as follow-up to the ideas that the community contributed to the Ideas Board earlier this year.

To ensure you don’t miss your opportunity to have your say, please sign up for updates at the Naughton Avenue webpage and we will contact you with the link to the survey once it launches. We’ll also post information on our Twitter and Facebook channels and on signs throughout Deep Cove Village.  

The results of the survey will be presented to Council in early 2022.
