Village of Baden - Snyder's Road Reconstruction

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Region will be reconstructing Snyder's Road between Foundry Street and Gingerich Road starting in the spring of 2021. This project will be divided into stages to minimize disruption to the public and businesses with progress and major milestones being posted on this project page.

Due to the nature of the work, detours will be required to take traffic around the construction zone and will be posted in advance of construction starting. Local traffic will be maintained as much as possible with some driveway access disruptions during underground servicing, concrete placement and other associated works.

    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.

    We would 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, if you have any known upcoming deliveries, are potentially moving or have any other access related matters please contact a team member via the contact list found here.

    As was mentioned in the last update, the contractor is expecting a second crew to arrive to commence work within Stage 1B from Sandhills Road to Gingerich Road. 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.

    As noted in the previous update, weather as well as other unforeseen impacts the Contractor unfortunately continues to be behind in the anticipated schedule. The need to work on some Saturdays in an attempt to accelerate the work is expected to occur and barring inclement weather, the contractor has proposed to work June 26th which will cause some disturbance such is being experienced through the week.

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

    Stay safe !!
