Construction Update - September 28th

The Public Works Department would like to remind residents that weather, staffing, and supply of materials can impact our construction schedules. The following activities are anticipated for the upcoming week:

Parking Lot Closures

170 Bridge Street - Please note crews will be in on Monday, October 2nd to facilitate the removal of the large poles that supported the Bell wire across the river. In order to remove the poles safely, the parking lot located across from the Town Hall on Bridge Street will be closed from 7:00 a.m. to Noon.

100 Bridge Street – The Public Works Department would like to advise residents that access to the parking lot may be restricted at times on Monday, October 2nd due to asphalt repair. Parking within this lot will be limited.

Bridge Street Project

Concrete crews and landscapers are expected to be on site next week to complete the remaining work on Bridge Street.  Please note crews may periodically need to block a lane of traffic or parking spaces to offload materials.  These interruptions are temporary, and access will be returned to normal as soon as possible.

Lake Avenue West

Thomas Cavanagh Construction Ltd. will be installing top lift asphalt along Lake Avenue from Carleton Pace High School to O’Donovan Drive (Mississippi Shores Subdivision) starting Tuesday, October 3rd. Cavanagh will make best efforts to avoid crews working within the vicinity of the High School while school busses are completing drop-off and pick-up duties. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact:

McNeely Avenue Multi-Use Pathway (MUP)

Paving operations are currently underway along McNeely Avenue for both the MUP and road reinstatement. It is anticipated paving operations will be completed by Friday afternoon. The Town of Carleton is encouraging residents to use alternative routes such as the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) or Bridge Street to cross the river as the sidewalk from Townline Road to Patterson Crescent remains closed. Cyclists are also encouraged to use these alternative routes as travel lanes have been narrowed due to construction.

Thomas Street (Townline Road to Bridge Street)

Thomas Street from Bridge Street to McKenzie Street remains closed to traffic as Cavanagh Construction will be continuing the process of excavating material for the installation of new underground infrastructure.  Motorists will need to find alternative routes to access McKenzie Street.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding any of our projects, please call (613) 257-2253.
