Construction Update - October 21st, 2021

The Town of Carleton Place’s Public Works Department strives to keep our residents informed of this year’s construction activities.  Please note, the following activities are planned for the coming days, however, these activities are subject to change:

Gillies Bridge

Now that the concrete approach slab has been poured, crews will focus on the rehabilitation of the center piers and beam.

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

Mill Street Sidewalk

Concrete crews will be on-site to install concrete sidewalk on Mill Street from the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) to Judson Street to ensure that there is a continuous pedestrian link for the duration of the Central Bridge closure. 

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.
