Construction Update - July 28th, 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:

Gillies Bridge

Despite the recent rainfalls, work is continuing on the Gillies Bridge as temporary supports have been installed rehabilitation work is underway on the underside of the bridge.  

The Town of Carleton Place would like to remind residents that for safety reasons, pedestrians must use the OVRT to cross the Mississippi River.

Central Bridge Project – Utility Relocation

Complications have led to a longer than expected duration for work on the north side of the bridge. Duct installation still needs to be completed in the municipal parking lot on the southwest side of the Central Bridge. Over the course of the next two (2) weeks, this duct will be installed in the municipal parking lot and preparations will take place to secure the temporary cable across the river.

Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)

Preparations are underway for crews to replace the concrete curbs and sidewalks on the east half of Bell Street.

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

Moffatt Street

AECON will be undertaking activities to install concrete curbs and sidewalks next week between McRostie Street and High Street.  Should time and weather permit, crews will begin grading operations in preparation for asphalt.

McKenzie Street

Crews will begin the installation of concrete curbs and sidewalk repairs where required.

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.
