$2.24 million Adelaide Street reconstruction begins May 4
The contractor will be on site to begin preparing the construction area with full scale road excavation commencing toward the end of May.
The project, from Durham Street to Kent Street, will involve replacing 545 meters of sanitary sewer and 685 meters of water main infrastructure in conjunction with the road urbanization project.
“The design of Adelaide Street was originally budgeted in the 2012 capital budget with the completion of the design work in 2013,” explained Juan Rojas, Manager of Engineering Services.
The work, scheduled to begin next week is phase 2 of a two year project. The City invested more than $750,000 in 2014 to reconstruct Adelaide Street from Mary Street to Durham Street as part of phase 1.
“The scheduled work will include full road reconstruction and urbanization, as well as storm sewer enhancements, partial sanitary sewer reconstruction, water main replacement, sidewalks, curb and gutter and asphalt road surface,” said Director of Development Services Ron Taylor. “The road resurfacing will remedy the poor conditions of Adelaide Street from Durham Street to Kent Street and will certainly address one of the many concerns we hear from residents and motorists.”
Phase 2 is expected to be completed by early November.
Motorists are asked to avoid Adelaide Street between Kent and Durham, instead using Angeline or Albert to bypass the construction area.
Detour signs will be erected prior to the construction commencing.
