Accesses to Kanata Commons, Kanata Ford, and Canadian Tire/Staples will be maintained at all times.
Aecon Construction is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely complete in 2021. They will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
This construction is within the City’s right of way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. The City will reinstate all sections of landscaping, driveways and walkways that are disturbed by construction. However, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right of way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you may care to move the plants in preparation for the construction work. You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem.
