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:
NEW - Moore Street Pedestrian Crossover
The Town of Carleton Place would like to advise residents that the installation of the new pedestrian crossover where the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) intersects with Moore Street is now complete and operational. Residents using the crossover are advised to utilize the push buttons when crossing Moore Street to activate the lights. Drivers will need to stop to allow pedestrians to cross safely.
Lansdowne Avenue & Coleman Street
TJL Construction will be moving equipment and commencing construction at the Coleman Street and Lansdowne Avenue intersection starting Monday, May 31st. This project includes the construction of new drainage works, the realignment of the OVRT pathway and sidewalk improvements, curbing and asphalt replacement where required. The project is anticipated to last approximately 3-4 weeks. Residents should be aware the flow of vehicle traffic will be impacted, and residents will need to follow the posted signage.
Crews will be focusing their efforts on 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.
