I am pleased to report that the Campeau Drive Extension project is progressing well. As I shared in my last update, the Province has not suspended work on this project due to COVID-19. The City and contractor continue to work closely to ensure that all recommended safety measures are being followed.
Since ground broke on this project in January, the following tasks have been completed:
- Earth excavation, site grading and granular work for the new roadways.
- Commencement of curb and sidewalk placement.
- Placement of concrete slabs on top of previously poured light weight fill (this fill is used to reduce the load on subgrade soils).
- Utility installations.
- Completion of watermain installation.
- Work for Carp River Bridge including east and west supports, forming and reinforcement for the bridge deck.
Grading of Campeau Drive between Country Glen and Winterset Road
Carp River Bridge Construction
You can expect the following work in the coming weeks, weather permitting:
- Granular placement on roadways and commencement of asphalt paving.
- Installation of curbs and sidewalks.
- Storm sewer installation.
- Utility installation (including work by Hydro and Bell).
- Continued work on the Carp River Bridge including pouring the deck and work on the approaches to the bridge.
Upcoming traffic impacts
To allow for roadwork, and sewer and utility installations, traffic interruptions may be experienced near the Didsbury Road and Campeau Drive intersection. If required, periodic off-peak lane closures or roadway narrowing may occur. On-site flag persons and signage will be used to direct traffic.
Access to the Kanata Commons community and to businesses will be maintained throughout construction.
Construction access to the site and material delivery will continue along Campeau Drive from Terry Fox Drive and Highway 417 and/or Palladium Drive and Highway 417.
I will continue to share updates as I have them. Please do not hesitate to reach out should you have questions or concerns about this project.
