What will be the road and driveway access like?
During reconstruction roads will remain open to traffic but may require
periods of detour or limited access. For your safety, please obey the
signs and flag-persons. Vehicle access to driveways will be maintained
as much as possible, however limited access will occur when work is
being conducted in the immediate area. The contractor will notify you
directly if driveway access will be obstructed for an extended period.
What about improvements on Town land?
Some residents may have installed fences, irrigation systems,
landscaping or other physical features in front of their home that are
within the Town property limits. These items may conflict with
construction activities. Prior to construction, a visual inspection
will be conducted by Town Staff or a Town Representative to determine
potential conflicts. In such cases, residents will be advised to remove
these items prior to the beginning of construction to avoid damage. The
Town is unable to re-instate, repair, or replace any physical features
installed within Town property.
What are the construction work hours?
Construction activity will conform with the Town’s noise by-law that
permits work between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to
Saturday. Work may be permitted after hours or on Sundays/holidays only
on an emergency basis.
What about my garbage, recycling and composting collection?
Garbage, recycling and composting collection schedules will not change during the construction period. Please follow your normal routine and place materials as close to the usual location as possible, by 7:00 a.m.
If necessary, the contractor will move the waste materials to an appropriate location for pick-up by the waste contractor. Please label all of your bins with your street address to ensure return.
How will this impact my driveways?
Asphalt driveways impacted by road construction will be repaired or
replaced to the extent required to restore the driveway to existing
condition. Replacement of existing driveways within private property and
outside of the construction limits is at the discretion of the property
owner. The Town is not a party to any private agreement entered into by
a property owner for the replacement of asphalt driveways and does not
specifically endorse or oppose such agreements with Town contractors or
subcontractors. Property owners may seek the services of any qualified,
guaranteed, and reputable contractor to complete driveway asphalt
