Construction notice: Victoria Road lane reduction for Sanitary Bypass starting February 24

The City is continuing construction on the York Trunk Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Feeder Main Phase 2B project. Work in this phase takes 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 and 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.

The southbound curb lane of Victoria Road between York Road and the Eramosa River bridge will be closed for approximately two weeks starting February 25.

Pedestrian access

All sidewalks will remain open and accessible along Victoria Road during construction.

Property and business access and parking

All businesses in the construction area remain open and accessible throughout construction.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during 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.
