Construction Update - September 6 2019


As residents are aware, the Central Bridge is in desperate need of replacement. As part of the bridge replacement which is anticipated for 2021, utility companies are making preparations for the bridge closure and replacement.

Currently there are several utilities on or near the bridge which will require alterations prior to construction. Starting Monday September 9th, Enbridge will be working on Bridge Street near the intersection of Mill Street (in front of the Town Hall) which will require lane reductions. Traffic control personnel will be in place to assist with traffic flow but residents could experience delays. We would like to encourage residents to use alternative routes, if possible.


The Town of Carleton Place together with AECON would like to inform residents of the following activities planned for the coming days:

Work is progressing well on High Street and AECON’s crews continue to deepen and replace the storm sewer between Moffatt Street and Joseph Street. Due to the deepening of the storm sewer, individual service connections may need to be altered. AECON will be informing residents, if and when, their individual service connections could be affected. AECON crews have also begun replacing several catch basins within the designated construction zone.

With children travelling to and from school, the Town of Carleton Place and AECON are urging parents to avoid using the construction areas as your route to and from school and to keep children away from the construction zones. The appeal of construction vehicles is tempting to curious children but for safety reasons we are requesting children stay away from the construction zones.

AECON and the Town of Carleton Place request your assistance in ensuring safe and efficient work zones. However, should residents be travelling within the construction zones, we urge you to proceed with caution and follow the directions provided by the Traffic Control persons and posted construction signage.

If a resident has any questions or concerns regarding these activities, please call (613) 257-2253.
