Durham Region to re-construct Wentworth Street in Oshawa


Published July 18, 2023 at 10:13 am

Wentworth Street in Oshawa is getting a makeover and the public is invited to have a look at what Durham Region has in mind.

The Region is proposing to reconstruct south Oshawa’s main east-west thoroughfare from Cedar Street to Farewell Street, a project that will include:

  • new asphalt pavement, new curb and gutter, and replacement of watermain and sections of the storm sewer system.
  • A new three-metre wide asphalt multiuse path will be installed along the north side of Wentworth from Cedar to Farewell
  • a new sidewalk will be installed on the south side of Wentworth from Nelson Street to Farewell

The remainder of the existing sidewalk will be replaced as needed within the project limits. The project will also include:

  • Realignment of Wentworth between the intersections of Simcoe Street and Ritson Road
  • Rebuilding the existing traffic signals at the Cedar, Simcoe, Ritson and Wilson Road intersections with Wentworth
  • A new traffic signal at Wentworth and Nelson
  • Lane reconfiguration on Wentworth east of Nelson.

The existing four through traffic lanes will be reconfigured to two through traffic lanes and a centre two-way left turn lane.

A Public Information Package with the project background and preliminary design is available on the Region’s project website, Durham.ca/Wentworth. Comments will be accepted until by August 17.
