Construction Update – August 5th, 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:

Central Bridge Project – Utility Relocation

Crews will be installing ducts in the municipal parking lot on the south side of the Central Bridge. This work will require access from Bridge St. to be closed and a small number of parking stalls will be cordoned off. Access from Allan Street to the Municipal Parking lot will remain open. It is also anticipated that crews will be in a position to start traversing the river with cables. There will be signage in place, but the Town asks that boaters exercise caution in the vicinity of the municipal docks and the Central Bridge. The municipal docks may be inaccessible for short periods of time during this work.

Gillies Bridge

Louis Bray crews will be continuing with the removal of the existing concrete on the bridge deck, approaches, and piers.

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)

Concrete crews are on site installing new curbs and sidewalk between Edmund Street and Mullett Street.  Crews will also be onsite to begin preparing the road base in preparation for asphalt in the future.

Residents are still able to fully access McPherson Automotive and the GastroPub.

Moffatt Street (McRostie to High Street)

AECON’s crews will be grading behind the curb and sidewalk.  Crews will also be grading the granular material within the roadway and preparing driveways for asphalt reinstatement.

McKenzie Street

Crews will be grading behind the concrete curbs and grading the roadway in preparation for asphalt.

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.
