Project Update - April 2020
The construction year split has shifted due to changes in the scheduling of area utility work. Please see the updated Scope Map for the new year split. Residents and property owners affected by this change will be mailed notification letters by the beginning of May 2020.
Bulletins will be distributed at the start of the construction season to inform residents affected of the proposed timelines of alley renewal work. A second construction bulletin will be delivered by the contractor approximately 1 week prior to the start of work at your property.
Investigation of some alleys that were not initially included in the King Edward Park project scope is ongoing. If work to improve these alleys is going to occur, residents and property owners will be notified through a construction bulletin.
About the Project
Alley renewal in King Edward Park will entail reconstructing the alleys identified to a new residential or commercial standard, as applicable. The construction will consist of removing the existing road structure, placing a new gravel base, completing minor concrete replacement, installing a new asphalt overlay and finishing with minor landscaping restoration. Construction is tentatively scheduled to start the week of May 18, 2020.
Alley renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage wherever possible, and upgrading existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. It also includes the opportunity for a local improvement to add alley lighting if property owners are interested.
Pruning and removals were completed over the winter to make room for construction equipment. Construction timelines and details will be available in the spring, and a notice will be sent to residents prior to construction starting. Residents can expect their alley to be inaccessible for approximately 4 weeks during construction.
