2019 Road Reconstruction

As part of the Town’s ongoing commitment to inform residents and property owners of municipal projects, Engineering Services will host public information centres on 2019 planned road reconstruction projects. Discussion items will include; construction timing, access to properties, garbage collection, parking, work hours, design elements for each street. 

 Port Elgin
 
 Harbour Street (Green Street to Izzard Road)
This project will provide for a trunk sanitary sewer needed to accommodate growth in the south end of Port Elgin, while improving the road and parking at the south end of the Port Elgin Main Beach.  It is a project being coordinated through both Engineering and Community Services and managed by Cobide Engineering.  Public Information Sessions are planned late in the Spring or early Summer, and construction is anticipated to be in the fall of 2019.
Elgin Street (Harbour Street to Spring Street)
Design work continues from 2018, tendering for construction in the spring of 2019 with fall construction anticipated.  Modified urban cross-section to include curbs and sidewalk combined with storm and sanitary sewer replacement.
 Southampton
 
 Emerald Street (Albert Street to bend)

Project Description:

This project is involved in the design and construction of the main water supply line from the Water Treatment Plant on Bay Street to the Southampton Standpipe (water tower) on Victoria Street.  The construction was tendered in the winter of 2019, with construction to commence in the spring and continue through to the winter season.  The project will be constructed in phases, starting at the trail section at Bay Street to Adelaide Street.  Trail closures during this time will be required.  Street closures for other sections as the project is completed in phases will also be required for varying durations.  A Public Information Centre will be hosted in May 2019, and affected residents will be provided with more detailed construction information prior to construction starting.  This project is an important piece of the water infrastructure, providing treated drinking water to the water tower, which in turn provides the pressures to distribute the water throughout Southampton. Emerald and Albert Streets will be rehabilitated back to the existing condition, with lane closures during construction.

Project Funding:

This project was included in the Council approved 2017 budget, through Water User Fees and OCIF Funding.

Bruce Roads 25 and 33

Bruce Road 25 and 33 construction continues to progress with the County. Currently these are both County owned roads, but at the end of the project sections, they will be transferred into the Town’s ownership. Delays have occurred in the project and the scope has been reduced for 2019. For 2019, storm sewers will be installed from the beach to Ridge Street (future road) and the road will be urbanized from Saugeen Beach Road to Shipley Avenue.

The Town has been communicating throughout the detailed design portion project with stakeholders, including meetings with the Beachers’ Association, presentations to the Waterfront Committee and a Public Information Centre. This is in addition to the required consultation that was carried out as part of the Master Plan process completed in 2017. Further communication is proposed as it will be incorporated into our Spring Open House for reconstruction projects.
