What to Expect During Construction

The work on your street includes:

  1. Removing the existing asphalt pavement and concrete road base below.
  2. Installing New Catchbasins and Storm Sewer Leads
  3. Replacing Covers on Existing Maintenance Holes and Catchbasins
  4. Replacing the Existing Curbs
  5. The Installation of a New Granular Road Base
  6. Paving the Roadway (Placing new asphalt)
  7. The installation of New Street Lights
  8. The Replacement of the Sidewalk on the West Side of the Roadway
  9. Restoration (New Topsoil & Sod and Repairing Driveways/Walkways where necessary)

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.

The City will be removing the existing asphalt pavement and the concrete road base beneath it as part of the work. After the existing pavement structure is removed, new granular material and asphalt will be placed on the roadway.

The City will be replacing catch basins and storm sewer pipes to improve drainage on your street. Frames and covers on existing maintenance holes and catchbasins are also being replaced if they are broken or no longer meet City standards. Others will be adjusted if they are too low or too high. Replacing and adjusting covers improves both drainage and the rideability of the roadway.

There may be days where you don't see the Contractor on site between the different stages (1-6). This is a normal part of the process. The Contractor has different crews that do different types of work.

There may be times where you don't have access to your driveway. For example, if curb or sidewalk in front of your house is being replaced, you will not be able to park in your driveway when it is being formed and poured. We will do our best to let you know ahead of time. Once the concrete hardens (usually after two or three days), you will be able to use your driveway again.

After the other work is complete, the Contractor will pave your roadway with 50mm of new asphalt. By removing and replacing the top layer of asphalt (and fixing drainage issues), the lifespan of your roadway increases.

The City anticipates that it may be necessary to close the road for short periods of time, so that the Contractor is able to work safely. There may also be times where you won't have access to your driveway during construction. The City will make every effort to ensure that it's restored as quickly as possible. Pedestrian access to homes and businesses will always be available during construction.
