Long winter delays Lakeshore Rd. repairs

Construction work to repair the surface of Lakeshore Road between Old Lakeshore Road and Guelph Line, following a watermain replacement in 2013, will begin the first week of July.

The resurfacing is one of the final milestones in the Lakeshore Road construction project that began in May 2013. Other elements of the project include replacement of a Halton Region watermain, construction of a new multi-use pathway, spot repairs of sidewalks, curbs and gutters and repairs to storm sewers.

“While the majority of the work was completed in December 2013, the long cold winter we experienced in Southern Ontario has delayed some of the final underground work and the resurfacing of the road,” said Scott Stewart, general manager of development and infrastructure. “We ask motorists and cyclists to be patient with the lane closures that will be a necessary part of the resurfacing.”

Minor underground restorations to the Lakeshore Road project are expected to be finished by the end of June. Work to replace the road surface will begin the first week of July once the school term is finished at Lakeshore Road Public School.

The resurfacing work in July will include curb and sidewalk replacements as well as any outstanding driveway repairs.

The remaining work in July will take about two weeks. During this time, temporary detours will be required to allow for a safe working area. The detours are expected to be minor. City staff will continue to work with the contractor to minimize any impact on residents.
