Notice of Construction: Argyle Street North from Domtar Road to Grand Trunk Lane (April 2021 – Summer 2021)

The Project: Empire Communities is upgrading the existing sewer system on Argyle Street North between Domtar Road to Grand Trunk Lane as part of the future Caledonia Gateway and Georgia Pacific developments.

Work Hours: The project will begin in April of 2021 and is expected to last into the Summer.  Work hours will generally be from 7 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, with occasional work after hours and on weekends.

Traffic Management: Construction will mainly be performed within the Argyle Street North north-bound lane. Traffic will be limited to one-lane in each direction for the duration of the project. The exception will be during the final stages of the underground work, at the south side of the rail tracks, where Argyle Street will be required to be limited to one lane of traffic. Efforts will be made to manage traffic for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Road users should expect delays.

Driveway Access: The contractor will notify you 24 hours in advance of any temporary restrictions to your driveway access. If your property has two entrances, one entrance will be kept open at all times.

Restoration: The construction work area will be restored to its initial condition with sod and/or asphalt . Interlocking bricks, flagstone on a granular base, or other similar features that are removed from public and private property during construction will be replaced. Lawn seeding and/or laying of sod will be completed during ideal growing seasons only.

You may experience dust, noise and other inconveniences. The contractor and the County will make efforts to reduce the impacts. We appreciate your patience.


During construction, the contractor is responsible for the Health & Safety on site under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act and is expected to implement COVID-19 mitigation practices. For more information on the County’s response to COVID-19 please visit
