The resurfacing of Sevent Street West, from Brookdale Avenue to Hoople Avenue includes the overlay of 50mm of new asphalt.  In areas with heavily cracked pavement, all the asphalt and the top layer of granulars will be replaced prior to the new layer of asphalt being placed.

What to Expect During Construction

The replacement of 6 catchbasins at Hoople Av will take place to help properly drain the intersection. There will be some concrete sidewalk spot repairs, as well as new curbing installed at Hoople Av, extending east for 50 metres on the north and south side of Seventh St.

The City in conjunction with CN will be removing the railroad crossing east of the Benson Centre, this will include track, wood planking and a full depth granular replacement. The crossing in the entrance to the Benson centre will also be removed.

Road and Driveway Access

The City anticipates that road closures will be required to complete the work safely. 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.
