$2.24 million Adelaide Street reconstruction project completed early
The project, from Durham Street to Kent Street, involved replacing 545 meters of sanitary sewer and 685 meters of water main infrastructure in conjunction with the road urbanization project.
The work, which wrapped up earlier this week, was 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 work included full road reconstruction and urbanization, as well as storm sewer enhancements, full sanitary sewer reconstruction, water main replacement, sidewalks, curb and gutter and asphalt road surface,” explained CAO Ron Taylor. “The road resurfacing has remedied 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 was originally expected to be completed in November.
“This is great news for motorists and residents,” said Corby Purdy, Supervisor, Infrastructure Design and Construction. “Having the contractors finish ahead of schedule with the extent of work that needed to be completed is definitely a success story for the City and our residents.”
