Background

The reconstruction of Alice Street from Montreal Road to First Street includes the complete rehabilitation of 475m of roadway, as well as improvements to buried infrastructure, such as the water distribution network and sewer systems.

What to expect during Construction

Work includes the removal of the existing combined sewer system, which is to be replaced with new storm and sanitary sewers. The separation of combined sewers has the objective of reducing wet weather flows in the sewage system and to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. It reduces the potential for basement flooding because flows are lowered in the pipe that is directly connected to houses. Separation also reduces Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) volumes and the potential for bypasses from the Wastewater Treatment Plant to the St. Lawrence River.

Water Service

The existing watermain on Alice Street is to remain in place, as it was rehabilitated via watermain relining in 2016.  Short duration service interruptions may occur.  You will receive notices of the interruptions a minimum of 24hrs in advance of the disruption, unless the disruption is a result of unforeseen circumstances, i.e. a watermain break.  Notices will also be posted to the 'Construction Notices' section of this webpage.  Residents who subscribe to the page will receive notifications via email.  Please click the green "Subscribe to this Page" button below in order to subscribe to the page.

Surface Works

Work also includes new curbs and asphalt pavement. As part of the project scope, the roadway will be realigned in order to better accommodate parking requirements on the street and to allow for the installation of a new 1.5m wide sidewalk on the west side of the road.

Utilities

Throughout construction, you will also see various utility companies (Union Gas, Cornwall Electric, Bell, Cogeco etc.) working within the project area. If you encounter any utility related issues throughout construction, please contact your utility company directly.

Driveway Access

Access to driveways may be impacted during the construction period; however, access will be restored as quickly as possible. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.
