Construction notice: York Road lane reductions start October 15

Eramosa River Park, Florence Lane and Brockville Avenue

About the project

The City is about to begin construction on the York Trunk Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Feeder Main Phase 2B project. Work in this phase will take place between Boult Avenue and Victoria Road in Eramosa River Park, and through Florence Lane between Hayes Avenue and Victoria Road, including work along the recreational trails, and a complete reconstruction of Brockville Avenue.

The York Trunk Sewer & Paisley-Clythe Feedermain is a $30 million, multi-year infrastructure project. It is the City’s largest water main and wastewater (sanitary) sewer project. It includes the installation of about 6.2 kilometres of water pipes and 3.8 kilometres of sewer pipes. The City’s 2009 Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan identified the projects as priorities in order to meet our community’s existing and future water and wastewater servicing needs.

Work in this phase is being completed by Varcon Construction Corporation.

York Road lane reductions start October 15

York road will be reduced to one alternating lane at Brockville Avenue starting October 15 until October 18, weather permitting. Two lanes of traffic may be restored during the overnight periods where possible.

York Road will return to two lanes of traffic at all times following October 18.

City services

There will be no interruption to any City services during construction. Waste collection will not be affected. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb, as per your regular schedule.
