The intersection modification project at Stittsville Main St between Fernbank and Flewellyn is nearing completion. However, there is some work still being completed.
I would like to take a moment to provide an update shared with me this week from the City inspector on the project.
The City’s forestry department had to come in (last week) and trim the existing trees at the intersection in order for traffic to be able to use the new widened lanes. The City’s traffic signals department was on site this week standing the new poles at the intersection. After these items are completed, Cavanagh have their landscaping contractor coming to work on the remaining reinstatement work.
The pavement markings have been installed on the side streets and are scheduled to be completed next week along Stittsville Main St. Once the remaining pavement markings are complete the traffic barrels will be removed.
City forestry met with the contractor and engineer and have agreed to relocate the existing trees at a deeper location but in approximately the same alignment. They have been carefully excavated around as per forestry to protect the root ball and to allow the relocation to occur with the best outcome.
As updates arise, I will include them in my weekly newsletter.
