Current Projects

Approximately 1.8 km of wood stave storm drain mains and 1.7 km of asbestos cement sanitary sewer mains is currently being replaced by cast-in-place-pipe (CIPP) lining.  This is a trenchless construction method that involves using compressed air to “blow” and expand a resin filled felt liner into an existing aged pipe. Once the liner is fitted into the existing pipe, steam or hot water is introduced to “cook” the resin. The physical property of the liquid resin changes to a hard plastic once successfully “cooked”, forming a new pipe inside the old pipe.  The CIPP lining will take place in eleven project areas:

  1. Alpine Crescent
  2. Stockton Crescent
  3. Service/Frechette Streets
  4. Burns Avenue
  5. Nigel Avenue
  6. Midgard Avenue / Mortimer Street
  7. Scotia Street
  8. Bethune Avenue
  9. Cloverdale Avenue
  10. Boleskine Street
  11. Maplewood Road

The pedestrian network within the Strawberry Vale Neighbourhood has evolved over time to include sidewalks connecting Wilkinson to Strawberry Vale School and Rosedale Park, however, connectivity to Hastings has been limited. To complete the connection, sidewalks will be constructed on Santa Anita Avenue. This residential street is heavily landscaped on both sides with large established trees on the west side. Both sides of the street were considered for sidewalk, the sidewalk on the west side would require the removal of at least four established trees. The choice which side of the street the sidewalk should be on was presented to area residents. The community indicated that the preference would be to not remove trees and have the sidewalk on the east side of the street. In addition to the sidewalk, a parking area will be constructed adjacent to Rosedale Park to address parking congestion on Santa Anita.

The Design and Tender process for the Tattersal Drive Upgrade project is now complete and the Contractor has been selected.  The anticipated schedule for construction is from July 2011 to November 2011.  In order to complete this project safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to close Tattersall Drive between Calumet Avenue and Savannah Avenue to all vehicle traffic for July and August.  During the full closure, access for residents, emergency services, pedestrians, and cyclists will be accommodated through the construction site.  Following the full closure, Tattersall Drive will be open to alternating one way traffic.
