As temperatures continue to rise, so does the number of construction projects across our community. The Town of Carleton Place 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. Upcoming this week:
Lansdowne Avenue & Coleman Street
TJL Construction will be removing the concrete curb and sidewalk where required and will begin installing a new storm sewer. Lansdowne Avenue will be closed to local traffic only from Laura Street to Coleman Street, and Coleman Street will be reduced to one lane periodically. Residents can still access all the businesses along Lansdowne Avenue.
The sidewalks on Coleman Street will be closed until further notice. Pedestrians are encouraged to utilize alternative routes. TJL Construction will ensure the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) route remains accessible to pedestrians, cyclists, and off-road vehicle traffic during construction.
AECON’s crews are continuing their efforts with the installation of the new watermain on Miguel Street between Franktown Road and Queen Street. Once the new watermain is installed, crews will backfill the trench with granular material and grade it accordingly.
Crews will also begin excavating for new curbs where there were no curbs previously.
If time permits, crews will begin repairing sidewalks where needed.
AECON will be mobilizing crews to commence activity for the installation of storm sewer infrastructure between High Street and McRostie Street. Residents impacted by this phase of construction will receive notification from AECON.
Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)
Due to overhead wires, Louis Bray crews are slowly making their way along Bell Street with the installation of the underground infrastructure from Bridge Street to Mullett Street.
Access to businesses is being maintained and residents are requested to follow the posted directional signage.
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.
