Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of November 2, 2020

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues. Work is now underway to create the Templeton Corridor and conduct early works in preparation for development of the future facility. Construction activities for this phase are scheduled to take place through mid-2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here.

As work progresses, we remain committed to keeping you updated on all scheduled construction and onsite activities. Check out this week’s update below. Please encourage your neighbors to subscribe to these updates if they haven’t already by emailing [email protected].

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

OVERVIEW (new updates this week)

Upcoming this week: Work will continue throughout the site, primarily at the southwest and northwest ends of the project site (see Week of November 2 details below).

Noteworthy milestones from last week: The noise blankets arrived early last week and have been installed. We continue to test their effectiveness in dampening noise from different types of activities. So far, we’re seeing measured reductions of about 5 dB at ground level (a reduction of 10dB would be equivalent to cutting experienced noise in half). Also, our online survey closed October 30 and analysis is underway to compile feedback and determine appropriate response. Please check back next week for more information.

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 NOVEMBER 2: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

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

New this week:

  • Install drainage ditch culvert at the southwest end of the project

Continuing:

  • Place base gravels for the MUP between Terrace Street and Miller Road
  • Place fill for the future Templeton Street roundabout
  • Electrical work for future pedestrian scale lighting along Terrace Street and Aylmer Road
  • Deconstruct and remove the former sign shop on Aylmer Road
  • Soil grading and hauling gravel and sand to and from site

Use of onsite equipment throughout the site will continue most days including 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. Our contractor also continues to suppress dust regularly with water trucks. 

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.
