 Construction Information

To protect construction workers, and to complete the work safely and cost effectively, temporary lane closures may be required, and traffic may be unavoidably congested at these times.  Such closures will be minimized as much as possible; however, at such times, the contractor will provide traffic control personnel.  Although the contractor is required to provide safe pedestrian access, care is requested when walking through the construction zone. 

Please note:

  • Construction will take place in stages and there may be delays between each stage.
  • In the event it can’t take place during the day pit is possible work may take place at night.
  • If your driveway curb is replaced and part of your driveway is disturbed, that portion of driveway (typically, one metre) will also be replaced.
  • The City guarantees all workmanship and materials for one year after completion of the construction activity.
  • For more information on the steps involved refer to

 Information for Residents


Access to your driveway may be interrupted for three to five days to pour curbs and/or reinstate the driveway.  Every effort will be made to maintain access to abutting properties and to minimize inconvenience to businesses, residents and pedestrians.

The contractor is required to provide you with advance notice when access to your property will be interrupted. Residents should mark in the field fixtures such as sprinkler heads and sprinkler systems prior to construction. The City will not be responsible for any damages to fixtures that were not marked.

In some cases, your property (lawn and driveway) may be disturbed during construction. The contractor will carry out the necessary restoration which in some cases will include the placement of new sod.

Driveways, if disturbed, will be repaired with the same material as existing.

Always avoid contact with hot asphalt or any construction material.

The limits of construction will be marked out for each street.  As a resident of this street, if there are any concerns regarding work which you feel may need to be addressed, and if it is work which could be considered under this contract please let us know as soon as possible so that we can determine if these concerns can be accommodated.  Once the contractor is pouring concrete it may be too late.  So please forward your concerns as soon as possible.
