Norfolk County has declared this project as an essential project. Work is proceeding under this declaration. The contractor will be required to provide a COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy for completing this work under current recommended guidelines. This includes social distancing both with other crew members and the public who may approach the job site.
We respectfully request that this social distancing be reciprocated by the public towards the crew members on site.
Notifications will be delivered as required to front doors and interaction will be avoided unless circumstances dictate that verbal notification is required. In those instances, social distancing of at least 2.0m will be maintained.
Project Scope – Langtry Drain
In general the scope of work will consist of the following:
- Establish site access;
- Major road crossings will be completed first;
- Vegetation and tree removals required for new drain construction;
- Install sediment and erosion controls;
- Ditching and culvert replacements along the drain, where necessary;
- Installation of new tile drains;
- Ditching along new and existing municipal drains, where necessary; and
- Site restoration to original or better condition. Please note that some restoration works will be required to be completed in the spring on 2023 due to current weather conditions.
The project has been awarded to Cassidy Construction London Ltd. It is expected that the successful proponent will mobilize to the sites in or around the week of November 28th, 2022 and most work should be completed by Spring of 2023. Due to the vast area being covered by this project, the timeframes when you could expect to see the contractor may vary greatly.
Information for Homeowners
Drainage Construction Working Area
Through the inspections carried out to date along the proposed and existing municipal drain, there have been a number of undesirable items identified within the working area i.e. scrap metal, appliances, etc. The working area is 20m wide for an open drain, and 10m on either side of a proposed tile. We ask that all items you wish to be salvaged, be removed and relocated outside of this corridor prior to the start of construction. These areas have been clearly identified with orange flagging tape on either side of the corridor through the wooded areas, or are directly adjacent to the existing Langtry Drain. If items are not removed by the start of construction, they may be relocated by the contractor. There will be no compensation for any damages to these items. If you have questions about how the corridor affects your property, please call to discuss further.
Transportation Impacts (Road Closures)
In order to promote a safe working area, this project will result in temporary road closures along the project route. For the safety and wellbeing of yourself and any pets, please stay out of the construction area for the duration of this project.
There is a number of culverts to be replaced on Charlottville Road 10, Turkey Point Road, McDowell Road and Charlottville Road 8. There are
also a number of driveway culverts that will be replaced through this project along Turkey Point Road. These culvert replacements may require the road to be fully closed at the limits of the excavation from time to time. Non-construction traffic will not be permitted through this localized work area while the culvert is being replaced. We will attempt to maintain access to properties immediately adjacent to these culverts; however, access may be temporarily impacted and will be assessed prior to and during construction. If access to your driveway is going to be restricted for an extended period, you will be contacted directly if required.
Driveway Access and On-Street Parking
The contractor is required to maintain access to all homes during construction. There will be occasions when you may experience some delays, lack of service and inconvenience. Every effort will be made by the contractor to minimize these occurrences as well as communicate when they are to occur.
We do ask that you refrain from parking on the street during construction activities as this can delay things and prolong the construction period.
Lawn Sprinkler Systems
All work is to be completed on Norfolk County owned property. It is unlikely that any private sprinkler systems will be affected by this project. However, we ask that if you have underground lawn sprinkler systems, please mark the locations of sprinkler heads adjacent the road or municipal drain.
Tree & Vegetation Removal
With every construction project comes the removal of some trees, shrubs or other vegetation for various reasons. Some are at the end of their life span, while others may be affected due to the working area and the need for access by trucks and equipment. Trees deemed to present a hazard or are in conflict with the current construction activities will be removed as part of this project.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
