Notice of Construction: Cast Iron Watermain Reconstruction – Caledonia (May – August 2021)

Engineering Services wishes to advise you that construction is scheduled to commence on this project in May in Caledonia. It is anticipated that work will be completed by the end of August. Streets will remain open daily during this project for local traffic only however access may be slow due to construction activities.

The work will involve replacing watermains along Queen Avenue, Blair Street, Park Lane and Cameron Street as noted above and then completing surface repairs including replacing existing substandard sidewalks and re-paving the roadway. There may be temporary water disruptions however the County will provide notice to affected residents in advance of any planned shut off.

Residents will have access to their driveways during the project however access may be restricted temporarily to complete certain components of the construction such as concrete sidewalk, curb work and driveway apron restoration. Advanced notice will be provided to any residents affected by these driveway access disruptions so that alternate parking and access can be arranged.

Staff understand that construction may cause temporary headaches to residents and business owners and ask that all affected individuals remain patient. The end goal of all construction work is to enhance our neighbourhoods and communities and the County is committed to minimizing disruption by communicating construction information in a timely manner and responding to resident needs/concerns.
