Construction Update - June 2023
Renewal work in McCauley will start tentatively the week of June 12, weather permitting.
The planned scope for 2023 (areas outlined in scope maps below) will include:
- Sidewalk, curb and gutter reconstruction
- Street light replacement
- Roadway rehabilitation
- Streetscape upgrade
If you live in the construction area, you will receive an additional construction notice that provides more information on what to expect during construction prior to work beginning.
The majority of construction will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Monday - Saturday. In some cases, Project Teams may need to work on Sundays, but this is rare and typically happens in the fall when cold weather is approaching.
It’s important to note that there will be periods of time throughout the construction where it appears as if no activity is occurring. Rest assured that the site activities progress in a coordinated manner and will be completed as efficiently as possible.
During construction, one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times. The one exception is that, toward the completion of each section of the neighbourhood, the roadway will be completely closed to traffic on select days to facilitate road reconstruction and paving. Before this happens a bulletin will be circulated to the affected homes and businesses five working days prior to the work.
Throughout construction, certain areas of the neighbourhood will have restricted parking. “No Parking” signs will be posted in these areas at least 24 hours before the restriction. You may park on any unrestricted street in your neighbourhood. Cars parked in “No Parking” areas will be towed nearby free of charge.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we start the first year of Neighborhood Renewal construction. Construction in McCauley is expected to take three years.
Construction in Boyle Street is set to begin in 2024 and take two years.
