As the revitalization of Downtown St.Catharines builds momentum, the City of St.Catharines is adding to the ongoing public and private investments that have transformed the city's core and surrounding areas by performing a series of road and service improvements on St. Paul Street and Queenston Street. With work ranging from streetscaping to municipal service improvements, the projects will help make Downtown St.Catharines better for businesses, residents and visitors, while solidifying its status as one of Ontario's most promising urban centres.
