2023 Joyce Street Sidewalk


The City will be installing a new sidewalk on Joyce Street between Surgenor Street and Dover Road. The Contractor completing the work on behalf of the City is Cornwall Gravel Company Ltd. 

What to Expect During Construction

Here’s how sidewalk construction will work:

1. Excavation

2. Relocating Water Shut-off Valves to Property Line

3. Grading and Placing Granular for a new Sidewalk Base 

4. Forming the new Sidewalk

5. Pouring the new Concrete Sidewalk

6. Restoration (New Topsoil & Sod and Repairing Driveways/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 new sidewalk.  If you have any service disruptions, please contact them directly.

Construction may affect your water service for a short time if we have to move your water shut-off valve. Sometimes, unexpected events happen, like watermain breaks. When that happens, we cannot provide notice. We will work to restore your water service as quickly as possible.

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

While the sidewalk is being formed and poured, you will not be able to park in your driveway. We will 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.

If you have any concerns, give us a call or e-mail us using the contact information on this page.
