Beginning in November, the City of Ottawa will commence design work for the rehabilitation of Lavergne Street, Jolliet Avenue, Montfort Street, Ste.

This work is being conducted to improve watermains, sanitary sewers and roadway infrastructure in your community.

Who: Design consulting firm, J.L. Richards Limited, has been retained by the City of Ottawa to develop preliminary and detailed design drawings and specifications for a construction contract that is to follow the design assignment.

Why: Due to the age and condition of existing sewers and watermains, the City of Ottawa will be proceeding with preliminary and detailed design and construction to upgrade the underground and surface infrastructure on the streets mentioned above.

What: Work will involve the design of watermains, sanitary sewers, storm sewers, full road / curb, and landscaping work. The design will detail the installation of new water services, sanitary laterals, and storm sewer laterals from the sewer / watermains to the property line.

The homes which have been identified as possible candidates for extraneous flow removal will be contacted separately.

When: The design work will be conducted through to the fall of 2016. Construction is currently expected to commence in the spring of 2017 and run through the fall of 2018. Typically construction will occur from May 15 through November 15, with a winter shut down period. The construction schedule will be confirmed through the detailed design process.
