Capital Project Update - October 11, 2022 
Earlier in May, we told you that this construction season would be one of the city’s busiest. We’ve been working on eleven key capital projects to maintain and improve infrastructure throughout the city. Here is the latest progress report as of Tuesday, October 11, 2022:

Connecting Link – controlled blasting for rock removal is now complete. Piping and granular fill is being done up to Wilcox. Curbs and sidewalks are proceeding on the south side of Algonquin Blvd. The utility poles on the north side are now removed and curb work has started from Theriault to Preston.

Paving (COMPLETED) – the City’s “Grind and Pave” project is complete. 5.8 km’s of roads have been paved and 5.6 km’s of rural roads have received surface treatment.

CCTV Inspection, sewer line cleaning, infrastructure repairs are all on-going.

Geotechnical Work (COMPLETED) – lab work related to the project is still ongoing but doesn’t affect the public.

Airport Rd. (COMPLETED SOON) – crews are now working on surface restoration like asphalt and sod replacement. All pit work and excavation are complete. Expect some short-delay road closures for paving as we head towards project completion. Bonus update: the Airport Rd. multi-use path will also be paved this week.

Work on the Bruce Ave. Bridge continues.

Denise St. (COMPLETED SOON) – paving is expected to begin this Thursday. All excavation is complete and curb work is finished up to Demine. Paving is tentatively set to begin Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

St. Jean Ave. Extension (COMPLETED SOON) – Paving has been completed. Crews are finishing up some surface restoration and work on street lighting.

We appreciate your continued patience with detours, road closures, and other disruptions that happen during construction season. Improving and maintaining our infrastructure is necessary and important. Thank you for your cooperation.
