Update - September 29, 2021

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.

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 !!
