The Town of Huntsville is confirming that the District will be starting construction in Huntsville’s downtown core to fix aging underground infrastructure and integrate new streetscaping elements on March 1st.

On March 1, Main Street from the Muskoka River Swing Bridge to West Street will be closed to traffic.

The Town says the “Diggin’ Downtown” project will consist of a total of 5 stages with the first 4 stages of construction spanning an estimated 8 months this year and a final stage to wrap up all construction activities in the spring of 2022. 

Stage 1 restrictions will be in place from March until the end of May and will concentrate on work to the Muskoka River Swing Bridge, and underground water and sewer replacement along Main Street and River Street.

The Town stresses that during construction downtown, all businesses will remain open. Pedestrian and business access will be maintained throughout all project stages.
