[Click to Enlarge]

In the spring of 2018, the Municipality will begin a multi-year construction project to replace the sanitary, storm and water system infrastructure in a large part of Thickwood, south of Thickwood Blvd. 

This project is part of regular infrastructure planning as this system is reaching the end of its lifecycle. The Municipality will be upsizing storm and sewer lines to accommodate stricter design standards and larger water volumes. 

Highlights of the Project

  • Seven individual phases
  • Phase 1 and 2 identified for 2018 – 2019
  • Projected timeline to finish in 2023
  • Multi-staged plan for minimal impacts to residents
  • No interruption of water service anticipated
  • All construction is anticipated to take place on Municipally-owned property

Highlights of Phases 1 and 2

Phase 1 – Runs from the top of Thickwood hill down to the river bank. Minimal impacts to residents are anticipated. Only potential impact to residents could be along the Silin Forest Trail.  Accommodation will be made to ensure residents can still access the trail area safely. 

Phase 2 – Rehabilitation of Thicket Dr. from intersection at Silin Forest to Rosslyn St.  Staged plan so road is not all dug up at the same time. Construction will move from east to west in stages as each area is completed.

During Phase 2, some impacts to residents are anticipated along Thicket Dr. in the immediate area of construction activity. Temporary parking, detours and traffic accommodation will be provided to minimize impacts to residents and traffic flow.

Water Service

Residents should not see any impacts to their water supply.  Any residences that are temporarily impacted will be notified and provided with a water supply.

Construction projects are subject to unforeseeable delays including weather, crew availability and equipment issues. All timelines are best guesses only.
