St. Julien Road Reconstruction - September 4 Update
Last week construction continued on installing the rock retaining walls the length of the road. Road structure work continued with gravel installation and compaction.
Work continued on trenching for the electrical conduit installation for new streetlights.
The crews also discovered several other utility lines, such as internet and power, had been installed at a much shallower depth than anticipated, and were located in areas that created a conflict with the new road work planned at the intersection with St. Julien Way. The lower depth due to bedrock close to the surface required additional routing and work by the private utility companies.
In order to make up lost time caused by the additional routing work and similar delays relating to connections with private services, the construction company has been given permission to work extended work hours next weekend. They will start at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 10, and the work will involve pouring concrete for curbs. The crews will also work on Sunday, September 11, from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., but the Sunday work will be limited to workers setting up markers and guides for the concrete pouring to resume on Monday.
This week, the contractor and subtrade workers will continue building the rock retaining wall, extending gravel installation and compaction and curb work.All properties lose access for curb installation
The pouring of concrete curbs and gutters this week sets the level for the road and sidewalk/trail. The work involves cement trucks extruding the forms in continuous segments up the road. Concrete requires several days to set before any vehicles are allowed on the concrete.This work will completely close vehicle access to private driveways for several days during and after the concrete is poured.
Please review the matrix below for closure dates and locations, which are subject to weather conditions.Property owners are encouraged to use the dedicated parking zones outside the construction area during this period, if vehicles are required for any trips.
Setting string lines and guides will be set starting on Thursday, September 8. The concrete curb and gutter installation is scheduled for September 9, 10, 12 and 13. Curing is expected to continue to September 14 and 15.
Asphalt paving is planned for about 10 days later, which will also cut off access to properties for three to four days. Please take note of the construction matrix for closures and plan ahead to access your vehicle.
