Construction Update - July 8th, 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 Utility Relocation

Bell Canada has begun the process to install a temporary overhead line across the river for telecommunications infrastructure for both Bell and Rogers.  Crews have begun working on both sides of the river to install the poles to support the overhead lines.

Louis Bray’s crews will be continuing with the installation of the new storm sewer on Bell Street between Mullett Street and Baines Street.  Concrete crews will be on site between Bridge Street to Edmund Street to install new concrete curbs and sidewalks. 

Access to the Waterfront Gastropub and MacPherson Automotive will be accessible from Bridge Street.

Miguel and Santiago Streets

As time and weather permit, AECON is planning to pave the base course asphalt from Moore Street to Park Avenue.

Louis Bray’s bridge crew has been busy this past week.  The installation of the cofferdams and dewatering operations will continue, and an access point will be created to allow Louis Bray’s staff to access 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.

Moffatt Street

AECON will begin the road excavation and laying of granular material from McRostie Street to High Street.

Bridge Street Pumping Station

The new gas service to the pumping station should be completed today.  Activities will be ongoing as contractors upgrade the pumping station.

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.
