Town looking at many road repairs

Category: 

Public Works crews will be keeping busy this summer as the town gears up to undertake nearly $2 million in street repairs.

“We have an engineering consultant right now surveying the sites for our 2002 roads project,” Operations and Facilities manager Pat Hickerson said this morning.

While the project still is in the design stage, and hasn’t gone to tender, the work being planned is fairly extensive, he added.

Streets slated for repairs include:

•Colonization Road West—Daniel Avenue to Emo Road;

•Fourth Street West—Cornwall Avenue to Central Avenue;

•Eight Street West—Williams Avenue to Mill Road;

•Pit Road #1 to King’s Highway;

•Sixth Street East—Crowe Avenue to Frenette Avenue;

•Eighth Street West—Portage Avenue to York Avenue; and

•First Street East—Mowat Avenue to Portage.

Work also may take place on Scott Street, from Mowat Avenue to Armit Avenue, but this is unconfirmed pending funding from the Ministry of Transportation.

In related news, sidewalk repairs also could be in the works this summer after town council last month gave first and second readings to two bylaws to replace 14 sidewalks.

But these repairs, which also will cost affected property owners, won’t happen until the town gets the majority of said owners’ agreement.

The locations of improvements are:

•Mowat Avenue (east side) from First Street East to Second Street East;

•Third Street East (north side) from McKenzie Avenue to Victoria Avenue;

•Third Street East (south side) from Mowat Avenue to Portage Avenue;

•Victoria Avenue (west side) from Third Street East north to the CNR property;

•Christie Avenue (west side) from Fourth Street East to Fifth Street East;

•Armit Avenue (east side) from First Street East to Second Street East;

•Third Street West (south side) from Holmes Avenue to Wright Avenue;

•Third Street West (north side) from Holmes Avenue to Wright Avenue;

•Third Street West (south side) from Webster Avenue to Lillie Avenue;

•Third Street West (north side) from Webster Avenue to Lillie Avenue;

•Second Street West (north side) from Holmes Avenue to Wright Avenue;

•Second Street West (south side) from Holmes Avenue to Wright Avenue;

•First Street West (north side) from Holmes Avenue to Wright Avenue; and

•Mosher Avenue (east side) from Front Street to Nelson Street.

The estimated lifetime of any work done is 15 years.
