UPDATE: TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE SOUTH SERVICE ROAD BETWEEN OGDEN AVENUE TO CAWTHRA ROAD – Status REOPENED

By October 27, 2023January 24th, 2024Resources, Ward 1

UPDATE from contractor GHD for the Ministry of Transportation Project:

We are writing to provide a quick update on the ongoing sanitary and storm work at Ogden Ave and South Service Road intersection.

Unfortunately, the contractor was not able to complete the work as planned and faced unexpected challenges related to complex underground utility conflicts while working on the sanitary infrastructure. Due to these unforeseen issues and with the fast-approaching Christmas break, the decision has been made to open the intersection temporarily on Dec 20, 2023, and remove the detour, and close the intersection again after the holidays to efficiently complete the remaining sanitary & storm work. The details of the closures are:

Closed from Jan. 8th to Jan. 26th , 2024 – SSR/Ogden MH1252 Storm Installation

Re-opened as of January 24th, 2024 at noon.

-SSR closure at Ogden on Jan. 8th, 2024, including detour installation

-realign water main to accommodate proposed storm MH1252 (as per response to IR#401)

-complete storm MH1252 and adjacent pipe runs

Just a heads up, the contractor has also provided closure dates for the completion of work on NSR/Westfield & Insley Road; however, this work will commence after the completion of the Ogden & SSR intersection work.

Closed from Jan. 29th to Mar. 1st, 2024 – Westfield/Insley at NSR Sanitary Installation

-mobilize to Westfield/NSR on Jan. 29th and commence Sanitary work

-Feb. 5th to Feb. 16th – Westfield Rd. closure at NSR

-Feb. 19th to Mar. 1st – NSR closure at Insley Rd.
