Northumberland County, in collaboration with the Municipality of Brighton, is moving forward with the comprehensive reconstruction of County Road 64 (Prince Edward Street). This significant infrastructure project will include the renew of approximately 6.9 km of the road, from Elizabeth Street to Stoney Point Road. The project will be executed over two years, with the rural section from Harbour Street to Stoney Point Road starting July 22 and running until early September.

2024 RURAL SECTION PHASE ONE UNDERWAY!

Road resurfacing and culvert replacement construction work will begin July 22 on the rural section of CR 64 for approximately 8 weeks. Construction work will be undertaken between Harbour Street and Stoney Point Road. Lane restrictions will be in effect to allow construction crews to safely work.

Located in the Municipality of Brighton, County Road 64 is a primary route through the Municipality, connecting to Prince Edward County and providing a north-south route for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists in the urban areas of Brighton. Several sections along County Road 64 have reached the end of their useful life and are in need of upgrades. Portions of the underground infrastructure also require upgrades or replacement as well.

The study

The County has launched a study to develop a design plan for County Road 64 (Prince Edward Street) that will address the existing infrastructure needs as well as support the travel and mobility needs of the community.

Scope

The study covers 6.9 kilometres of road, extending from Elizabeth Street in downtown Brighton to the Quinte West boundary at Stoney Point Road. The study is divided into two sections:

2024 Rural road section: Harbour Street to Stoney Point Road

Improvements could include:

  • Road resurfacing
  • Culvert replacement
  • Addition of paved shoulders

2025/26 Urban road section: Elizabeth Street to Harbour Street

Improvements could include:

  • Upgraded sidewalks
  • Paved cycling lane or multi-use paths
  • Traffic calming features
  • Intersection upgrades
  • Rehabilitation or replacement of sewers and watermains
  • Grading improvements that may impact properties outside of the road right-of way

Process

A study was carried out following Schedule ‘B’ of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process which provides a framework for the planning, design, and implementation of infrastructure projects. The study and related public and agency consultation included:

  • Assess the condition of the existing roadway and underground infrastructure
  • Identify opportunities for safety, accessibility, and active transportation improvements
  • Develop alternative designs for road improvements and related infrastructure
  • Examine impacts of alternative designs on the social, cultural, and natural environments
  • Identify measures to mitigate potential impacts
  • Evaluate the alternatives and establish options for implementation

Public consultation is now closed

Public engagement objectives for the County Road 64 (Prince Edward Street) Reconstruction project:

  1. Inform residents and road users about the study to undertake improvements.
  2. Obtain feedback about the proposed options to inform a course of action.

Second public information session: Completed March 21, 2023

On Tuesday, March 21 from 5 pm to 7 pm, an in-person public information session was held at the King Edward Park Arena, in Brighton. Information and preferred designs where presented on infrastructure and intersection upgrades, as well as suggestions on how best to improve sidewalks, traffic calming features and multi-use features for cyclists and pedestrians.

First public information session: Completed July 27, 2022

On Wednesday, July 27, 2022, Northumberland County and representatives from the Municipality of Brighton held the first of two public information sessions to review the opportunities for improvement.

I agree with the comment below regarding improving the safety of the intersection at Harbour and 64, and especially Boes and 64.

Some of the suggestions listed above are great but as for the paved shoulder please don’t, our endangered turtles nest along there and it will take away even more green. If you’re following the speed limits and proper safe distance then there’s no need for a left turn lane onto Harbour as you have lots of time to slow down. Maybe more speed controls through there would help. The rest of the suggested items above are pretty needed

Parking seems to be done on the tarmaced sidewalk area. Is there any way to put some parking on one side of the street or should there be “no parking” allowed. People walking have to go around the vehicles, sometimes onto the road to get by.

H. Dyson about 2 years ago

I find that the intersections of 64 and Harbour, and 64 and Boes, come upon a driver very quickly. Both are on a curve, poorly lit, poorly signed, and they do not posess a left or right turn lane. There is little escape for a trailing car to avoid a collision with a turning car. Improving these intersections should be looked at.

I LOVE the suggested improvements mentioned in the description - all of them. My priorities for this are making Brighton more walkable/bikeable. Included in that would be a crosswalk at Butler Street for regular foot traffic, and Grimes for easy access to the shops in the Industrial Park and Service Ontario. I second the suggestion for better access to the Industrial Park for heavy trucks, though we already have a secondary route that's just less convenient for truckers - not sure how to improve on that.

jeff.wheeldon about 2 years ago

Consider creating an alternate heavy truck route to access the Loyalist Industrial Park. The increasing amount of heavy truck traffic going there. combined with new home construction trucks traffic, must be contributing to the breakdown of the road surface? Make a gentler grade for both directions approaches to the double CN/CP rail crossing. It's so steep now the proximity warning system in my car goes off, thinking I'm going to hit something!

NO overpass underpass on Prince Edward St (64) please. We have been through that debate numerous times. Let us move forward and do the reconstruction for safety and longevity.
