Contractors complete $1.3 million Bobcaygeon project
The four month project on Front Street East and Anne Street in Bobcaygeon included installing a new storm sewer system as well as new curbs, gutters and sidewalks.
“We appreciate all of the patience and cooperation shown to us by the community,” said Corby Purdy, Supervisor of Infrastructure, Design and Construction. “The investment here in Bobcaygeon through this project marks a much-noticeable improvement for residents, businesses, motorists and pedestrians.”
The project was scheduled to be complete by the end of June and City staff and contractors have ensured that is the case.
“In spite of the weather we have worked hard with the contractors to ensure we stuck to the timelines to get the work done when we said the work would be done,” said Mr. Purdy. “We understand this is a busy time of year for businesses in Bobcaygeon and we couldn’t be happier to have this project wrapped up so everyone can enjoy these tremendous improvements over the summer months.”
“This is the first phase of a three year plan to improve and enhance the infrastructure in Bobcaygeon,” explained Ron Taylor, acting CAO for the City of Kawartha Lakes. “The initial $1.3 million investment in 2015 is a major commitment to address the infrastructure needs in Bobcaygeon.”
Phase 2 and Phase 3 are subject to Council approval in future budget years.
“On behalf of the City, I would like to again express my gratitude to the public for their patience during this project and thank both the public and our contractors for making these much-needed enhancements to Bobcaygeon’s infrastructure a reality,” added Mr. Purdy.
