Update - August 29, 2021

2 Week Forecast:

Weather permitting, the contractor will continue with curb installation with Stage 1B (Sandhills Road to Gingerich Road), followed by the new separated concrete cycling lanes. With concrete work, access to and from residences will be affected for longer durations to allow proper curing to avoid damage. The contractor is to notify residents/businesses in advance of this impacts to allow for alternate parking arrangements if needed. The contractor will make efforts to complete half of an entrance at a time to allow access, however please note that this is only possible where widths allow and not the typical standard. 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.

Stage 1A construction zone between Whiting Way and Forler Street will being continuing with storm sewer replacement.

Stage 1C (Forler to Sandhills) has been reduced for this construction season to only include the section between Schneller Drive and Sandhills Road. This decision was made to reduce risks of not completing the work prior to winter shutdown. The remaining section between Schneller Drive and just east of Forler Street will be completed in the Spring of 2022. The setting up of the temporary watermain in the reduced section will be taking place within the next week or so, however 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.

Ongoing reminder to please 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.

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.

Finally as noted in previous updates, weather as well as other unforeseen impacts still results in the potential need to work on some Saturdays in an attempt to accelerate the work and just a note that this will cause some disturbance similar to that being experienced through the week.

As always, thank you for your patience during these necessary upgrades.

Stay safe !!
