Working Hours

  • Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours are consistent with the Region of Peel’s and City of Mississauga’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to complete.


  • Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction during construction.
  • If we have to reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.

Driveway Access and Repair

  • Due to construction activities, we may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you before we do this to arrange for the best time and for alternate access, if needed. If your driveway is blocked, you may choose to park on a side street for a short time. If you need immediate access to your driveway, the contractor will have road plates available to quickly allow access in and out of your driveway.
  • We will make sure businesses have access at all times.
  • If we need to cut your driveway to replace the existing service valve or access the watermain, we will repair the asphalt in the disturbed area from edge to edge across the driveway. Unfortunately the Region cannot completely replace your driveway.
  • Several weeks before the driveway restoration work, we will send you an update with contact information for the contractor, in case you wish to have the remainder of your driveway (private side) paved at the same time.
  • We will repair your driveway as soon as we can, but there may be a short delay.
  • If you have any concerns, please call the Hanlan Ambassador.

Irrigation or Sprinkler Systems

  • Please tell the Hanlan Ambassador if you have underground irrigation or a sprinkler system outside your property line.
  • You may wish to move the sprinkler lines to inside your private property to avoid damage.

Trimming Trees

  • If tree branches within the right-of-way interfere with construction, the contractor will have the trees pruned before equipment enters the drip line of the tree.
  • If tree branches on private property interfere with construction, they will be pruned back to the nearest suitable trunk, crotch or branch.
  • The contractor will ask you for permission before cutting any branches. If you do not allow the contractor onto your property to trim the branches, the branches will be cut vertically at the property line.

Interrupting Your Water Supply

  • It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
  • If we have to shut off your water because of an emergency, we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.


  • You may feel slight vibrations from the construction work.
  • Property owners and/or tenants within approximately 100 metres of the proposed construction zone should have received a letter offering a free preconstruction inspection survey performed by dBA Environmental Services Inc. If you have not received this letter, please call the Hanlan Ambassador.

Replacing and Taking Care of Your Sod

  • The contractor will take care of any sod we replace for 30 days.
  • You can help the sod to stay healthy by watering it for one hour in the early morning, two or three times a week. This is especially important in hot or dry weather.
  • We will replace your sod as soon as we can, but there may be a short delay.

Repairing the Road, Curbs, and Sidewalks

  • We will start restoring the road and boulevard once all replacements and service transfers are complete and as weather permits.

Multi-use Trails

  • In support of the Mississauga Cycling Master Plan and the Peel Active Transportation Plan, we’re working with the City of Mississauga to improve walking and cycling facilities along the Hanlan Water Project Route.
  • In your area, we’re building asphalt multi-use trails along the west side of Cawthra Road from Meadows Boulevard to Burnhamthorpe Road.
  • Trails are designed to fit within the road right-of-way property limits.
  • Work will begin on the multi-use trail in spring/summer 2017.
  • For general information about trails and cycling in Peel, visit walkandrollpeel.ca or mississauga.ca/cycling.
  • Email any questions about the multi-use trail to walkandroll@peelregion.ca.

Project Updates

  • Check hanlanwaterproject.ca/construction for construction updates and to see where traffic is likely to be affected.
  • Follow us on Twitter @hanlanwp or call the Drivers’ Hotline 1-855-hanlan1 (1-855-426-5261).
  • The Region of Peel will let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
  • Please call the Hanlan Ambassador if you have any concerns or special needs.
