Kanata West Pump Station and Forcemain Project and Maple Grove Closure – UPDATE

As a part of the ongoing construction work for the Kanata West Pump Station and Forcemain Project Maple Grove Road is currently closed between Terry Fox Road and Huntmar Road.

Work is underway in both segments of the road that have been closed. Paving is underway in the section from Terry Fox to Silver Seven, and sewer installation is underway in the segment from Silver Seven to Huntmar.

 

In last week’s newsletter, I did announce that Maple Grove Road would be re-opened to traffic between Terry Fox Road and Silver Seven Road at 2 p.m. on Friday July 14, weather permitting and the closure of Maple Grove Road, between Silver Seven Road and Huntmar Road, would remain until Friday, July 21, weather-permitting.

 

Due to the recent heavy rains as of late, work has been impacted but I have been advised today, that the contractor was able to locate additional resources to ensure the Terry Fox-Silver Seven will reopen today as initially planned. Alternatively, the Silver Seven to Huntmar segment scheduled for completion July 21st may remain closed for a longer period of time and will be assessed as the work continues next week.

 

More details will be provided in my weekly newsletter and through my Facebook page as they arise. I would like to thank residents for their patience at this time.

 

The Contractor will take every precaution necessary to minimize interruptions to residents but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as delays and traffic detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration.

 

Signed detours for vehicles and bicyclists will be in place during the duration of the road closure.
