The Public Works Department strives to keep our residents informed regarding municipal construction activities. With so many construction projects planned within the Town of Carleton Place this year, we recognize there is going to be a lot of information to be shared with the public. Descriptions of all our construction projects for the 2021 season are now available on the Town of Carleton Place website on the Infrastructure Projects page https://carletonplace.ca/infrastructure-projects.php
We would like to advise our residents of the following activities for the days and weeks ahead, however, the schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions, changes in the provision of materials and/or availability of staff:
McArthur Island Watermain Crossing (Previously referred to as the Mill St. Watermain Crossing)
With the recent wonderful weather, Louis Bray Construction has now completed the installation of the new watermain piping on the north side of the Gillies Bridge.
Crews have mobilized near the intersection of Princess Street and Franklin Street as they start working towards the bridge on the south side. Excavation activities have begun within the area and work will continue for the installation of the new watermain.
The Town of Carleton Place would like to ask for everyone’s help in ensuring safe and efficient work zones. Access to this portion of Princess Street (including Mill Street) has been restricted to ensure the safety not only for Louis Bray staff but also for the safety of pedestrians. We strongly encourage residents to avoid the construction areas and follow the directions provided by traffic control personnel and/or the posted construction signage.
We ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation during this 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.
