Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of January 25, 2021

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues, with ongoing construction of the Templeton Corridor. Construction activities for this phase are scheduled to take place through mid-2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here. This week's update follows below.

Thank you to all our neighbours for your support and patience as we work to complete this project safely and in a timely manner.

GENERAL INFORMATION (new updates this week)

Terrace Street preload removal is complete and this week crews will begin installing new utilities (storm and water pipes and electrical conduit). Each utility must be installed separately. Each time, crews will start at the east end of the construction site and work west toward Aylmer Street. This means it will be noisy at first, getting quieter as they work their way east over a period of about two weeks for each utility. The entire process will take approximately six to eight weeks, weather dependent. See below for this week’s other construction details.

If you have questions about the project and would like to connect with our community liaison Pam by phone or in person, please email to [email protected].

WEEK OF JANUARY 25, 2021: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

Areas of focus this week (all weather dependent) include:

Starting this week:

  • Utility installations along the future Terrace Street extension.
  • With return of drier weather, dust monitoring and watering as necessary.

Continuing:

  • Soil grading and old utility removals.
  • Drainage monitoring.
  • Vehicles and equipment moving throughout the site.

Onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, concrete trucks, compacting equipment, a forklift and a mobile crane. Broadband travel alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise in the area. Traditional tonal alarms may still be heard on equipment and vehicles that travel to and from the site, or equipment that will be onsite for shorter durations.

HOURS OF OPERATION & SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES

Construction takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Equipment and machinery are turned on after 7:30 a.m. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.

Please note plans, activities and onsite equipment are subject to change based on evolving project needs and weather. Given the increased frequency of rain, workers may need to come to the site to monitor erosion and ensure the proper flood protections are performing adequately outside of the normal hours of operation.
