The proposed work includes the rehabilitation of culverts near Banner Road and Canfield Road. In addition, a section of local storm sewer, currently running through backyards, will be relocated to nearby streets. As part of the project, tree removal will be required, the project team is working with Forestry Services and new trees will be planted as part of the landscaping plans.
The City is renewing the storm infrastructure in Graham Creek to rehabilitate sections of culvert that are in poor structural condition, improve pipe performance to mitigate the risk of flooding, intercept debris transport along the creek, improve public safety, and improve access for operation and maintenance servicing.
The proposed work includes:
- From Leslie Park to the storm inlet south of Banner Road
- Sections extending from the north of Canfield Road toward the south, under Canfield Road to Trend Arlington Park
Local storm sewers
- Currently running through backyards south of Banner Road will be relocated to the City right of way on Keppler Crescent and Parkmount Crescent to make them accessible for maintenance servicing.
