    It's that time - Kids are back to school!

    This update is provide details of progress and look ahead over the next 2 weeks and forecasting into the seasonal shutdown.

    Surface asphalt has been placed on 2021 works in Stage 1A & 1B & 1C between Whiting Way and Gingerich Road.

    Driveways within Stage 1C are to be paved this week weather permitting.


    Topsoil and sod has been placed and residents within Stage 1C as well and notices were delivered which provide tips for the best success at establishing the new turf. Our contractor will be responsible until the spring of 2023 due to the time it has been placed which will include the first mowing as well as core aeration in the next month or so.


    As noted in the last update - those residents within Stage 1A & 1B should already be maintaining the sod along frontages as well as within the boulevard

    There are some isolated areas that were identified for replacement as they did not establish well and the landscaping contractor will be scheduling to complete these areas in the coming weeks when the temperatures are more favorable. Areas approaching Gingerich Road that received seeding versus sod will also be addressed in the near future as they also did not meet requirements and therefore will tilled and re-seeded again once temperatures are favorable to do so.



    Sanitary sewer installation is complete between Brewery Street to west of Brubacher Street and currently the contractor is working on installing watermain with this same section. Dewatering challenges continue to impact installation and limit production rates and prolonging the construction progress. Once the watermain is in, the contractor will begin the sanitary and watermain servicing to each resident.

    Our Contractor has also began sanitary installation from Brewery Street westerly towards Foundry Street, however further dewatering measures ahead of the installation are required which is delaying progress.



    Currently motorists and pedestrians can access businesses between Brewery Street and Brubacher Street via Brewery Street and into next week access on Snyder's Road from the east should be available. As usual if you have issues or questions regarding access and how to navigate the work area or just general enquiries regarding the construction taking place please do not hesitate to reach out to the Region's onsite inspector Jeremy Bieniarz (WalterFedy) at 519-465-0539 or jbieniarz@walterfedy.com.


    Please be mindful that excavations may be left open at night to aid the Contractor’s production and progress, along with maintain the dewatering operations.

    As mentioned in the last update, due to the delays encountered again this construction season a portion of work between Brubacher Street and Whiting Way will need to be deferred until next construction season. Deferring this work will allow our Contractor time to compete the current active work zone and properly prepare again for winter shutdown by November 15.

    A letter will be distributed closer to the winter shutdown period with more details

    Thank you for your continued patience.

    Hopefully residents are enjoying summer with friends and family!

    This update is provide details of progress and look ahead over the next 2 weeks and forecasting into the seasonal shutdown.

    Concrete works in Stage 1C are now finally complete despite ongoing concrete supply shortages across the province affecting all construction projects.

    Driveways within Stage 1C are being prepared for asphalt and topsoil placement along frontages and within boulevards is expected to be placed prior to surface asphalt in preparation for sod placement when weather is favorable.

    As was noted on the last update the Contractor is also using isolated lane closures to address some deficiencies from Forler Street to Gingerich Road in preparation of surface asphalt placement August 13 & 14.

    A letter was delivered to residents adjacent construction back in June providing details for the paving operation and details with a link to the letter can be found on the June 20th update or by clicking HERE.

    Please note that those residents within Stage 1A & 1B should be maintaining the sod along frontages as well as within the boulevard as the contractor has satisfied requirements of spring fertilization, aeration and first mowing. There are some isolated areas that were identified for replacement as they did not establish well and the landscaping contractor will be scheduling to complete these areas in the coming weeks when the temperatures are more favorable. Areas approaching Gingerich Road that received seeding versus sod will also be addressed in the near future as they also did not meet requirements and therefore will tilled and re-seeded again once temperatures are favorable to do so.

    A detour will be posted and residents are asked to avoid the area as access to Snyder's Road will not be available during the paving operation and until the newly placed asphalt mat reaches a temperature safe to drive on.

    Sanitary sewer installation is still on-going east of Brewery Street and as was communicated in the last update progress continues to be slower then normal due to poor soil conditions. Dewatering challenges with the sanitary installation is limiting production rates and prolonging the construction progress.

    Our Contractor has reached Foell Street intersection and is progressing towards Brubacher Street with hopes that conditions improve.

    Please be mindful that excavations will be left open at night to aid the Contractor’s production and progress, along with maintain the dewatering operations.

    Due to the delays encountered again this construction season a portion of work between Brubacher Street and Whiting Way will need to be deferred until next construction season. Deferring this work will allow our Contractor time to compete the current active work zone and properly prepare again for winter shutdown by November 15.

    A letter will be distributed closer to the winter shutdown period with more details

    As usual motorists and pedestrians can reach out to the Region's onsite inspector Jeremy Bieniarz (WalterFedy) at 519-465-0539 or jbieniarz@walterfedy.com if their are questions regarding routes to navigate through site as the construction operations are ongoing or any other site related questions.

    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.
