Construction Update – June 9th, 2022

The Town of Carleton Place Public Works Department strives to keep our residents informed of all our 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 anticipated next week:

Bridge Street Reconstruction Project

College Street to Mill Street – Crews will be continuing with the installation of the electrical conduits and bases for the new streetlight fixtures along the west side of Bridge Street from College Street to Mill Street.

Franklin Street to Mill Street – Louis Bray will be completing the process of replacing catch basins within this section of Bridge Street next week.

Water Valve Replacements - This work is nearing completion with two valves to be replaced mid-week. One valve is located at the south end of the project near Lake Avenue and the other is just south of Allan Street. In order to replace these valves, the supply of water to properties will be impacted. Any properties affected by this work will be notified in advance.

Central Bridge Reconstruction Project

Unfortunately, the wet weather has impacted the schedule for the concrete pours for the pier caps and north abutment.  It is expected these works will proceed next week. Also, preparations for the concrete pour for the south abutment are continuing.  Completion of these concrete pours will facilitate the planned placement of the large bridge girders which is scheduled for the end of June. These concrete girders have been in production for some time and the placement of these large components will be a significant milestone in the Central Bridge project. In order to reach this crucial deadline, crews have been working longer hours during the week and will also be working this Saturday, June 11th.

Munro Street (Moore Street to Rochester Street)

Cavanagh Construction has completed asphalt removal and will be excavating the road base and laying new granular materials.

Moffatt Street (Townline Road to McKenzie Street)

Cavanagh Construction will be installing new concrete curbs and sidewalks.  Residents should have already received notification and contact information from Cavanagh Construction regarding access to driveways and walkways while concrete work is being completed.

Lyndhurst Street

Crews will begin working on Lyndhurst Street next week with the removal of the existing asphalt and the start of the replacement of the sanitary sewer and watermain.
