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.

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

OVERVIEW

Upcoming this week: Work this week will continue throughout the project site, with a focus on the Aylmer Road area and the southeast corner (see Week of November 9 details below).

Noteworthy milestones from last week: Thank you to everyone who completed our community survey. We are analyzing the results and intend to host an online community meeting in the coming weeks (date to be confirmed shortly).

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 9: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

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

New this week:

  • Environmental work for soil erosion control due to heavy rains last week
  • Most of the activity this week will take place further away from Wellington Crescent

Continuing:

  • Install drainage ditch culvert at the southwest end of the project (deferred from last week due to weather)
  • Electrical work for future pedestrian scale lighting along Terrace Street and Aylmer Road
  • Deconstruct and remove the former sign shop on Aylmer Road (for this activity only, work will take place 7-days per week, and is not expected to generate significant noise, dust or vibration effects in Burkeville, given the nature of the work and relative distance from the community)
  • 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.
