COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the City of Ottawa is committed to protecting people and the community. The Province of Ontario has allowed certain businesses and workplaces to reopen, including all municipal construction projects, as long as they comply with strict measures for public health and safe operations. In addition to the City’s ongoing work on critical infrastructure projects, we are now able to resume work on other construction projects that were paused due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The City is working closely with the industry and complying with restrictions and recommendations provided by municipal, provincial and federal health officials, as well as the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
This notice is to advise that construction in your neighbourhood will be starting in late September 2020.
This work is being conducted to complete the renewal of a large diameter culvert conveying Beaverbrook Creek across Teron Road between Chisholm Court and Bethune Way.
What: Work will involve the rehabilitation of the storm sewer structure and replacement of its associated structures, followed by reinstatement of private property disturbed during construction, final asphalt paving, and landscaping reinstatement.
Why: Due to the age and condition of the existing infrastructure, the City is proceeding with the replacement of the storm sewer structure.
When: Construction was expected to start in mid-July however has now been rescheduled with a planned start of September and is anticipated to be complete by spring 2021.
Where: Teron Road (between Chisholm Court and Bethune Way).
Who: The City of Ottawa has retained the contractor, In-Depth Contracting, to complete the work.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact the project team listed below. Accessible formats and communication supports are available, upon request.
At all times, lanes will be narrowed to accommodate the proposed construction. Access to local businesses and private properties will be maintained throughout the construction period. Access for pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained.
As the various construction activities are in progress on your street, on-street parking will be restricted. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be distributed to permit on-street parking within two blocks of your residence.
Adjacent Private Properties
The construction 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.
Property Damage Caused by Construction Activities
As part of this Contract, the Contractor is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely complete, as well as any damages to private property resulting from these construction activities. In the event of such occurrences, all claims for damages should be immediately reported both verbally and in writing to the Contractor and to the City’s on-site Representative. This will ensure prompt notification of appropriate authorities to complete the claim investigations.
The Contractor 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 construction work, such as delays and traffic detours, parking restrictions, noise, dust and vibration. You may also feel vibrations due to heavy equipment operations. Vibrations from construction activities are quite common and rarely cause any problems. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
For construction activity hours of work, the City of Ottawa follows provincial requirements and the City’s Noise By-law (2017-255).
