Affected Services

Water, sanitary, sewer, Hydro, Telephone, Cable TV, and gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Curbside Collection: On the normal curbside collection day, residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of your property as usual. The construction contractor will remove these items and take them to outside of the construction zone, for pickup by the City’s waste pickup contractor. Your garbage cans, recyclable items to the front of your property by 7 a.m. otherwise these items might not be picked up.

Access to Properties

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to driveways. However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction. Access will be restored as quickly as possible. The Contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restrictions to the businesses and residents. Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.


The Contractor is required to conduct his work in a safe manner, including fencing of deep excavations, etc. We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.

Traffic Impacts

All road will remain open to through traffic during construction, although lane closures and restrictions can be expected in order to accommodate construction activities. We ask for your patience in such instances.
