PRELIMINARY AND DETAILED DESIGN FOR THE
RECONSTRUCTION OF BRIDGE STREET
Bridge Street is the Commercial Centre for the Town of Carleton Place, and the central link across the Mississippi River. Reconstruction work is to include replacement of all hard surfaces (Asphalt, sidewalks) between Lake Avenue and Central Bridge. In addition, being considered for inclusion are new decorative streetlighting, new signalized crosswalks, and enhanced streetscaping features.
The Town of Carleton Place is proceeding with the replacement of the Central Bridge, with construction scheduled to start in Spring 2021, which will include full closure of Bridge Street over the Mississippi River. By combining the replacement of the Central Bridge with the Reconstruction of Bridge Street, overall duration and severity of public impacts resulting from these required public works are expected to be minimized.
It is expected that this project will result in substantial impacts to residents and businesses. As such, extensive public consultation will play a key role in project planning. Preliminary project information for the Central Bridge was presented at three Public Information Centres held in 2018-2019.
A Public Meeting is being scheduled to present the conceptual design approach for the reconstruction of Bridge Street, and to facilitate coordination between the project team and interested residents and businesses.
The meeting will be held as an informal “Open House” with materials pertaining to the Project on display, and members of the project team on hand to answer questions and discuss issues related to the project.
