Construction Update – September 14th, 2023
The Public Works Department would like to remind residents that weather, staffing, and supply of materials can impact our construction schedules. The following activities are anticipated for the upcoming week:
Bell Canada will be on-site Thursday, September 21st to remove the overhead Bell cable crossing the river. In order to facilitate the cable removal, Bell will be closing the parking lot across from the Town Hall for the entire day.
We are also pleased to announce that the masonry crews will be completing their activities this week. As part of the final stages of the Bridge Street revitalization project, next week the landscapers will be moving onto the street to complete a variety of landscaping tasks.
McNeely Avenue Multi-Use Pathway (MUP)
The Public Works Department will be continuing with the construction of the MUP along McNeely Avenue. The Town of Carleton is encouraging residents to use alternative routes such as the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) or Bridge Street to cross the river as the sidewalk from Townline Road to Patterson Crescent remains closed. Cyclists are also encouraged to use these alternative routes as travel lanes have been narrowed due to construction.
Joseph Street Pumping Station
Work will be continuing on the electrical systems. Crews are scheduled to complete the exterior of the wet well once the rebar arrives on-site.
Thomas Street (Townline Road to Bridge Street)
Thomas Street from Bridge Street to McKenzie Street remains closed to traffic as Cavanagh Construction has started the process to excavate material for the installation of new underground infrastructure. Motorists will need to find alternative routes to access McKenzie Street. Cavanagh Construction will also be installing additional catch basins between McKenzie Street and Townline Road.
