Town laneways included in contracted road work
Jack Tupling, the town’s Director of Public Works, says the contractor, Brampton-based Graham Bros. Construction Ltd., are breaking down their work into several categories. They will grind and resurface some roads and parking lots in town, along with some isolated work on sidewalks and trails.
He says the Town does not have a fixed schedule for when and where Graham Bros. will be doing the work but currently the employees are working on preparing the sites for paving.
Mr. Tupling says that because of this preparation work, Graham Bros. will be able to come in and do the paving more quickly, and that it is safe to say that given the work and locations, any lane or road closure should be only for a relatively short time.
Residents are being asked to avoid any streets with construction or street closure signs.
Mr. Tupling says it’s not that we’re into to a long reconstruction process, but residents should be aware that construction will be moving around town.
The shortage of downtown parking spaces worsened Wednesday as construction work closed the off-street parking areas behind CIBC. Work was proceeding on laneways connecting the parking areas to Zina Street, as well as on a laneway between Zina and Elizabeth streets, and Zina and Ada streets near the county courthouse.
