Construction Update - September 16, 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 the coming days:

Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)

Landscaping is to be completed this week. Due to the high demand for paving crews, staff are anticipating paving crews will be on-site the week of September 27th to pave the top lift of asphalt.

Please note residents will continue to have access to the Gastro Pub and MacPherson’s Auto Centre.

Gillies Bridge

Louis Bray’s crews have poured the concrete for the abutments and work will be ongoing.

The Town of Carleton Place would like to remind residents that for safety reasons, pedestrians must use the OVRT to cross the Mississippi River.

Bridge Street Pumping Station

Crews have completed the work for the footings and have now begun working on the new foundation.

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.
