Road Construction Project

Henry Street Reconstruction

This project — Frances St. to Eccles St. N. — is being undertaken to replace deteriorating infrastructure that has reached the end of its lifecycle, with new infrastructure that will provide service levels that are consistent with today’s standards.

Project Updates

May 2019

  • The contractor is currently adjusting catchbasin lids and carrying out other works in preparation for top asphalt paving.
  • It is anticipated that top asphalt paving will occur in mid-June.

August 3, 2018
The project is substantially completed. Site restoration is ongoing and should be completed by mid-August. Top course asphalt will be placed in summer 2019.

Project Features

The project includes the following:

  • Replacement of the existing sanitary sewer
  • Replacement of sanitary service laterals from the new sewer to property line
  • Replacement of the existing 32mm diameter watermain with a new 150mm diameter watermain
  • Replacement of water services from the new watermain to property line
  • Installation of a new local storm sewer system
  • Replacement of the existing concrete sidewalk
  • Reconstruction of the road surface including granular base, subdrains, concrete curb and gutter, and hot mix asphalt surface


March/April 2018Project tendered (open competitive bid process)
May/June 2018Construction start
June 2019Construction substantially completed
Summer 2019Top course asphalt
The base is placed in one year and top course the next year to allow for settlements to occur (first freeze/thaw cycle) before top course, resulting in a smoother road surface.

Affected Services

Sanitary sewer, hydro, gas, telephone and cable TV services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Water service may be interrupted for just a short duration in order to switch the water service over from the old watermain system to the new watermain system. Notice of timing of any planned water interruption will be provided in advance of such occurance.

Curbside collection will not be affected. On your normal curbside collection day, area residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of the 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 contractor. Garbage cans, organic bins and recycling boxes will be returned to the property later that day. Please mark your address on all of your containers.

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Access to Properties

Vehicle access to properties within the construction limits will be provided at almost all times throughout the construction period, however on various occasions direct access to driveways may be restricted.  Access to driveways will be restored as quickly as possible after the work causing the restriction is completed.

Pedestrian access to properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the 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.
