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 are planning to be on site next week to continue with the relocation of telecommunications infrastructure. However, the contractor has experienced a delay in the delivery of materials needed for the project.
Residents are encouraged to follow CP Scoop and the Town’s social media for updates.
Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)
Now that the storm sewer installation has been completed, road excavation operations, including removal of existing sidewalks and curbs will be undertaken next week from Edmund Street to Mullett Street. This work is being conducted in preparation for the return of concrete crews which is expected to occur the first week of August.
Residents are still able to access McPherson Automotive and the GastroPub.
AECON will be undertaking activities to install concrete curbs and sidewalks next week between McRostie Street and High Street.
AECON will also be excavating for the installation of concrete curbs where needed.
Access to the underside of the bridge has been secured and preparations are ongoing to implement temporary support for the bridge structure in order to commence rehabilitation of the existing beams.
The Town of Carleton Place would like to remind residents that for safety reasons, pedestrians must use the OVRT to cross the Mississippi River.
