Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of October 26, 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].

OVERVIEW

Work this week will continue throughout the site, primarily at the south end and along Terrace/Aylmer (see details below). Work on the new multi-use pathway (MUP) continues; crews made great progress at the south end of Burkeville last week. Grading and soil compacting for the area immediately adjacent to the fence line is almost complete and will resume in the coming weeks. Also the noise blankets are expected to arrive soon and we will install them as soon as possible.

A reminder to everyone that our online survey will be active until October 30. You can access it here. Burkeville residents may have seen our new community liaison Pam Ryan around the neighborhood last week. Pam is available by phone or in person if you would like to connect. To reach out to Pam, please email to [email protected]. 

WEEK OF OCTOBER 26: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

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

  • Electrical work for future pedestrian scale lighting along Terrace Street and Aylmer Road
  • Soil grading in the south west area of the project, including ongoing work associated with hauling gravel and sand to and from site
  • Deconstruct and start removing the former sign shop on Aylmer Road
  • Potentially start MUP construction between Terrace Street and Miller Road

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.
