There is definitely no shortage of activity occurring within our community and the Town is very busy with many projects underway. 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:
Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)
If residents are curious about the work completed on Bell Street, residents can get a bird’s eye view of the project and familiar sights around Carleton Place in this video prepared by Louis Bray Construction.
Louis Bray’s crews will be connecting the new watermain on Bell Street to the Carleton Place distribution system next week pending laboratory results from the water samples that were taken this week.
Bridge Street Pumping Station Reconstruction
Activities are underway to replace the aging pumping station. The current structure is carefully being removed and the new building will be constructed in the coming days.
Miguel and Santiago Streets
LDC Precision Concrete crews will be finishing concrete curbs and repairing sidewalks where needed.
Enbridge’s crews will be on-site relocating a portion of the current gas main.
AECON will mobilize staff and equipment onto McKenzie Street to begin the process of installing stormwater piping and catch basins.
Louis Bray’s staff will continue sealing the cracks on the bridge deck. The Town of Carleton Place would like to remind residents that for safety reasons pedestrians must use the OVRT to cross the Mississippi River.
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.
