The City will be replacing the culvert crossing at Boals Drain on Benny Avenue in 2021.

The project involves removing the three (3) existing corrugated steel pipe (CSP) culverts and replacing it with a concrete box culvert.

The existing culverts are in very poor condition and need to be replaced. As a result of poor soil conditions in the area, a helical pile foundation must be installed beneath the new box culvert. The helical piles (also known as screw anchors or screw piles) transfer the weight of the box culvert, onto the pile instead of the soil. The project also involves relocating the watermain beneath the existing culverts.

What to Expect During Construction

The project will involve the following work/stages:

  1. Setting up by-pass pumps and sediment and erosion control measures. These measures protect fish and wildlife. Fun fact - work in streams isn't permitted between March - July 15th of each year to protect spawning fish.
  2. Excavation and removal of the existing culverts.
  3. Installation of a new helical pile foundation.
  4. Installation of the new concrete box culvert.
  5. Relocation of the existing watermain.
  6. Restoration - includes new topsoil and sod and the repair of driveways and walkways.

Before the work starts, you may see utility companies (Enbridge, Bell, etc.) on your street. They are moving infrastructure they own to accommodate the work. If you have any service disruptions, please contact them directly.

There may be days where you don't see the Contractor on site in between the different stages of construction. This is a normal part of the process. The Contractor has many crews that do different types of work.
