    2 Week Forecast:
    The contractor is preparing to pour curbs within Stage 1A (Whiting Way to Forler Street), followed by the new separated concrete cycling lanes. The majority of sidewalk within Stage 1B (Sandhills to Gingerich Road) will also be completed during this time. The concrete work is anticipated to commence September 29th and weather permitting will be completed by October 8th. Fine grading and asphalt will immediately follow the concrete placement and is currently scheduled for an October 12th paving date. It is anticipated residents will have full access to their driveways again on or about October 15th weather permitting. As stated in past updates, unlike underground work, concrete placement effects access to and from residences for longer durations to allow proper curing to avoid damage.

    Notices, as well as a parking map (click here) have been distributed to each resident and we ask to please park in the areas designated per the plan. The contractor will make efforts to complete half of an entrance at a time to allow access for businesses or multi-residential units, however please note that this is only possible where widths allow and is not the case for most residential driveways. If you know of a specific date/time you require access, please reach out to one of the contacts listed below to discuss possible alternate arrangements.

    Commissioning and final connection of the new watermain in the modified Stage 1C (Schneller Drive to Sandhills Road) is to be completed and will only impact a small percentage of those within the direct area. Notices similar to those as posted in past updates will be distributed at least 48 hours in advance. Click here to see an example.

    This is just a reminder that the contractor has delivered notices for a scheduled water shutdown to those affected residents in order to complete final connections to the newly installed watermain.

    Click on the images below to see more information about the notices distributed as well as the map of affected areas.

    **Notices will be distributed to remaining residents in advance of future water shutdowns**

    First, we would like to apologize for the extended period for this latest update.

    Secondly, we have received feedback in which residents have expressed concerns over durations of active work in particular locations as well as questions regarding why the road is being affected in the same locations multiple times. Any road reconstruction that involves replacement of deep major utilities must be staged/coordinated especially when the working area is limited. In this case all major utilities including sanitary sewer, watermain, storm sewer as well as servicing to properties are all occurring. Due to the different locations, elevations and the sequence of the work there is a need to expose areas that have already been excavated to undertake the various stages until all underground work is complete and servicing has been installed to property line. Although it may appear unorthodox at times, this process is standard within the industry.

    2 week forecast:

    Weather permitting, the contractor will be finishing both the sanitary and water servicing to affected homes/businesses within the Stage 1A construction zone between Whiting Way and Forler Street. Following completion of the services, the storm sewer replacement within Stage 1A will begin starting near Forler Street.

    There may be the need for a shutdown for isolated residents on Snyder’s Road within Stage 1A to complete final connections of the watermain and once a date is known notices will be distributed at least 48 hours in advance to those affected residents.

    Also at the same time, the storm sewer is at the east limit of the project within Stage 1B is scheduled to be completed followed by road excavation.

    We would again like to stress the importance to everyone to please NOT disturb and/or tamper with any part of the temporary water system in any way as it's imperative water is always flowing.

    Residents are also reminded once again that this road section is closed to through traffic and that only local traffic should be attempting to access the area. For those within the work area a reminder that the contractor will make efforts to notify in advance of ability to enter/exit your access. Also there have been several reports of "off roaders, 4x4s" coming through after hours and tearing the road up and causing a lot of noise and disturbance have been received.

    We encourage residents to call the police if an there is an immediate risk of property damage, safety or nuisances that requires police presence. Please follow up with the project team including pictures and license plate numbers as well so we can assist.

    If you witness any suspicious activity, have any known upcoming deliveries, are potentially moving or have any other access related matters please contact:

    Weather permitting, the contractor will likely be finishing the sanitary sewer replacement within the Stage 1A construction zone between Whiting Way and Forler Street by weeks end. Once complete the contractor will look to commence the watermain replacement starting at the west limits of Stage 1A. There may be the need for a shutdown for isolated residents on Snyder’s Road within Stage 1A to do some necessary work on the temporary watermain and once a date is known notices will be distributed at least 48 hours in advance to those affected residents.

Traffic control has been set-up within this area and the intent is to start removals on June 24th barring inclement weather or other unforeseen factors.

    With work commencing in Stage 1B, residents within this section are being asked to follow the Waste Management guidelines here regarding how to sort your waste as well as a new flyer produced by Waste Management regarding waste and recycling during construction which residents within Stage 1A have successfully done. We would please ask that these guidelines be followed and residents ensure all that all waste materials/bins/containers be marked clearly with your address and that items be placed before 6.a.m. to avoid unnecessary issues with the collection/relocation process.
