Construction Update - September 23, 2021

The Town of Carleton Place’s Public Works Department strives to keep our residents informed of this year’s construction activities however, the record rainfall we have had this week has impacted the schedules and availability of many construction crews.  Please note, the following activities are planned for the coming days, however, these activities are subject to change:

Bell Street (Bridge Street to Mullett Street)

Due to the rainfall that has occurred this week, crews have been delayed.  They are optimistic that in the coming days they will be able to return for the installation of the final lift of asphalt.

Gillies Bridge

Louis Bray’s crews have begun installing the watermain across the Gillies Bridge. Work is also continuing on the reconstruction of the abutments.

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

Bridge Street Pumping Station

Crews are continuing with the construction of the new foundation for the pumping station building.

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.
