Construction Schedule

The project has been awarded to Elgin Construction.  Construction is scheduled to start July of 2021 and continue through to November 2021.

Information for Homeowners

During the construction of this project, it is our intention to minimize the impact on your everyday life.  If any special needs or requirements routinely occur during a day or week, we need to be made aware of them in order that the necessary arrangements can be made so that these needs can continue to be met during construction.

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

Sanitary Sewer Servicing

The replacement of the sanitary sewer is being completed as part of this project.  All sanitary services will be replaced from the main sewer to one meter past your property lines as part of this project.  You should experience no interruptions with your sanitary sewer during the project.

Watermain Servicing

The replacement of the watermain is being completed as part of the project. Your existing water service will be connected at the property line to a new service from the watermain.  The contractor and our site inspector will notify you of any interruptions to your water supply that will be required to complete this work.

The contractor will be providing a temporary water system for this project. This system will be installed and tested to the same standards of Norfolk County as permanent installations. The temporary distribution system will be connected to your existing service.  This temporary system will allow for the contractor to complete the project efficiently and safely while maintaining water supply to you.

Any disruption during the connection of your water service to the temporary system or to the new permanent system should be minimal.  There may need to be interruptions of longer duration to allow for the main line connections of the new system to the existing system.  You will be notified in advance of these interruptions and provided with some indication of the anticipated duration.

Storm Sewer Servicing

A new storm sewer is being completed as part of this project to provide drainage for the new roadway.  Storm services to each property will not be provided by this system.

Garage and Recycling

The Contractor is required to maintain the pickup of garbage bags, garbage containers and recycling boxes left at the curbside from abutting residential or commercial properties within the limits of construction.

This may include the picking up of bags, containers and recycling boxes and placing them at a location convenient for pick up by County contractor.  If this is required, empty garbage containers and recycling boxes shall be returned to the respective property owners on the same day.

Please clearly mark all containers and recycling boxes with your address so that they may be returned to the correct location.   All regularly scheduled garbage and recycling pickups shall be maintained regardless of whether the Contractor is working on that day.

Lawn Sprinkler Systems

We ask that if you have underground lawn sprinkler systems, that you please mark the locations of sprinkler heads adjacent the road and/or sidewalk.

Tree Removals

With every construction project comes the removal of some trees for various reasons. Some are at the end of their life span, while others have water and sanitary services within the root areas that would be damaged by construction. Trees deemed to present a hazard or are in conflict with construction activities will be removed as part of this project. Norfolk County will evaluate the potential for appropriate tree planting opportunities after construction is complete.
