Construction Update - September 2, 2021

The Town of Carleton Place’s Public Works Department strives to keep our residents informed of this year’s construction activities however, schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions, changes in the provision of materials and/or availability of staff.  The following activities are planned for next week:

Gillies Bridge - Louis Bray’s staff are making significant progress on the rehabilitation of the Gillies Bridge.  Crews have been rehabilitating support beams and making preparations for concrete pours for the abutment walls that are planned for next week. The Town of Carleton Place would like to remind residents that for safety reasons, pedestrians must use the OVRT to cross the Mississippi River.

Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street) - Paving operations will begin tomorrow.  Residents are encouraged to use alternative streets while paving crews are on site.  Next week, crews will also be working on reinstating driveways and making manhole/catch basin adjustments.  Please note residents will still be able to access the Gastro Pub and MacPherson’s Auto Centre.

Miguel Street, Moffatt Street & McKenzie Street - Now that the weather is cooler, in the coming days crews will be laying sod in the areas damaged by the construction.

The Town of Carleton Place asks for everyone’s help in ensuring safe and efficient work zones.  We encourage residents to avoid all construction zones, however, should residents be travelling within the construction zones, we urge you to proceed with caution and follow the directions provided by traffic control personnel and posted construction signage.  We ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation during the construction season, however, should a member of the public have any concerns or questions of a general nature, please contact the Public Works Office at 613-257-2253.
