The reconstruction of Metcalfe and Geddes Streets included the replacement of all underground utilities (hydro, natural gas and telephone), asphalt and gutter, sidewalks, two sets of traffic signals, new trunk watermain and decorative street lights. The local businesses were included in the design process to ensure that access was maintained and that the disruption to all businesses was kept to minimum. Numerous public meetings were held and many suggestions were incorporated into the final design. The contract for this project was specifically scheduled to contain construction activities to designated blocks to keep the disruption to a minimum. The streetscaping for this project included planting beds in the boulevards, decorative brick sidewalks, decorative street lights and pedestrian sitting areas.
