$1.3 million Bobcaygeon road and sewer project to begin Wednesday, March 4

Filed under: , , ,
March 3, 2015 - BOBCAYGEON – Beginning Wednesday, March 4 contractors will begin a four-month project to install a storm sewer system and ‘urbanize’ Front Street East and Anne Street in Bobcaygeon.

The initial $1.3 million investment will see the installation of a storm sewer system with a small amount of watermain work to facilitate the storm sewer.

“We’re excited to see this project get underway,” said Corby Purdy, Supervisor of Infrastructure, Design and Construction. “This project represents a major commitment and investment to address much-needed infrastructure in Bobcaygeon.”

As part of the project, Front Street East and Anne Street will also have curb, gutters and sidewalks installed as well as new asphalt.

Motorists will see that both Front Street East and Anne Street are posted as ‘Closed – local traffic only’ once construction begins. Motorists are encouraged to use Main Street and Duke Street to avoid the construction area.

Once complete the project will provide significantly better water drainage in the area.

The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of June 2015.

Phase 2 and Phase 3 are subject to Council approval in future budget years.
