We have started construction of the Cawthra Rd. Sanitary Sewer and Watermain, Phase 2. This is part of the Region of Peel’s multi-phased project to reduce basement flooding by diverting wastewater flow away from areas prone to surcharging, expand sanitary sewer capacity, and upgrade the water system capacity and reliability. View area map (PDF).
The scope of the Phase 2 project includes:
- Installing 1500mm (5 feet) diameter sanitary sewer on Cawthra Rd from Burnhamthorpe Rd E to Bloor St, by tunnelling.
- Installing 1200mm (4 feet) diameter sanitary sewer on Bloor St W from Mississauga Valley Blvd to Cawthra Rd, by tunnelling.
- Installing smaller diameter sanitary sewers and watermains along various adjacent streets, by the open cut method.
- Noise level: medium, some vibrations might be felt.
- Contractor: Technicore Underground Inc.
- Site Inspector: Cole Engineering Group Ltd.
Construction started in late 2019 and will be substantially completed by mid-2022.
Reducing the impact of construction
- We will manage traffic to minimize disruption to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.
- Regular working hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. We may extend working hours for tunneling activities.
- 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.
Traffic, driveway and parking information
- All roads and streets within the project limits will always remain open to traffic; however, we may need to temporarily reduce traffic to a single lane during some portions of work.
- 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.
- On-street parking will be reduced during construction.
- We will have to remove some trees along the construction route. We will replace these trees and restore landscaping when we have finished the work.
