Project Update - November 2023
2023 construction began in June and was finished the first week of November. The 2023 construction season was a success and we completed a significant portion of the planned work in the area outlined in the scope map below. This includes all underground utility installations, the majority of sidewalk, curb and gutter replacements, some areas of road reconstruction and landscaping work.
Due to a later construction start on the project as well as unforeseen utility conflicts, we were unable to complete street light and LID installations that were initially planned for this year. Several areas of road reconstruction and concrete replacement were in turn impacted due to their integration with these features. These areas have been rescheduled to be completed in 2024. We have placed temporary asphalt structures in these areas to ensure all roads and sidewalks are safe and accessible for residents over the winter season.
The outstanding work will be completed when construction resumes in 2024. Parts of the 2023 construction area will also require sod. Once the weather warms up, typically in early May, the landscape subcontractor will be completing the sod placement. By waiting until spring, the sod is more likely to establish.
Neighbourhood Renewal work will resume in the Ottewell neighbourhood in spring of 2024, weather permitting. We will complete the outstanding road reconstruction, sidewalk renewal, street light installation and LID construction from the 2023 scope of work. We will also be completing the scope of work previously planned for 2024. This includes road reconstruction, sidewalk renewal, LID construction, streetlight renewal and landscaping work. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences.
