Construction notice: York Trunk Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Feedermain Project

Phase 2B: Eramosa River Park, Florence Lane and Brockville Avenue

About the project

The York Trunk Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Feedermain Project is a multi-phased project to expand Guelph’s water distribution infrastructure and install a new trunk sanitary sewer link from the west to the east side of the city.

Work in this phase will take place between Boult Avenue and Victoria Road, including work along the recreational trails, and a complete reconstruction of Brockville Avenue. This stage will include 265 metres of 1200 millimetre diameter sanitary sewer installation on Florence Lane between Lawrence Avenue and Hayes Avenue using an open cut method.

Construction to begin August

Due to unforeseen site conditions, the installation of the 1200 millimetre sanitary pipe will be through an open cut method. In addition to local water and sewer, pipes on Florance Lane will be replaced and asphalt paving will take place.

Work is set to begin the first week of August and take approximately two months, weather permitting.

Property access

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways during construction working hours (7 a.m.– 7 p.m.). Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property and delays should be expected.
