Watermain replacement and improvement

Nashua Drive. Project 21-1310D

The Region of Peel will be repairing driveways, roads, curbs, sidewalks, and sod (grass) following the replacement of the watermain on Nashua Drive.

Restoration schedule

This restoration work will begin in May 2022 on Nashua Drive.

Restoration work will begin by fixing curbs and sidewalks. This will be followed by driveway and road paving repairs. Sod will then be replaced where grass has been damaged. This process will take approximately 4-6 weeks if weather conditions are favorable.

As restoration work progresses, we will provide more detailed timelines through email. Receive these timely updates by signing up for e-notices at peelregion.ca/construction.

Please note that repairs may be delayed due to contractor availability or weather conditions.

For example:

Contractor and working hours

The work will be overseen by Rymall Construction under contract to the Region of Peel. This contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but shorter working days would require your neighborhood to be under construction for a longer period of time.

Traffic and parking

We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane during construction. If we must reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions. On-street parking will be reduced when we are actively working on your street. If you need to park on the street, please park outside the active construction zone.

In-ground sprinkler systems

If the area in front of your home was affected by the construction work, in-ground sprinkler lines may be impacted during the upcoming repairs to sod, driveways, sidewalks and curbs. We strongly recommend moving any sprinkler lines that are located next to the sidewalk or driveway, or within the municipally owned right-of-way. The right-of-way is the land owned by the municipality between the street and your water service box (small, round metal valve in either your driveway or lawn).

If you can’t relocate these sprinkler lines, please:

Replacing and taking care of your sod

The contractor will replace any damaged sod (grass) on the boulevard or your front lawn, and will take care of the new sod for 30 days. You can help the sod stay healthy by watering it. A longer ‘deep root watering’ works better to establish new sod than watering more frequently for a shorter time. Watering in the early morning allows more water to soak in rather than evaporating.

Driveway repairs

If we have cut your driveway, the driveway will be repaired by paving a stripe over the disturbed area, resulting in minimal seams in the final driveway. The Region of Peel cannot replace your entire driveway.

If you would like to have the rest of your driveway paved, please contact the contractor, The Crupi Group at (416) 291-1986. The contractor will then share contact information for the company hired to do the paving repairs. Please remember this is your option. If you decide to have your entire driveway repaved, this extra paving work is your responsibility and outside the jurisdiction of the Region of Peel.

Driveway access and parking

We may need to block your driveway for a short time during paving activities. We will make sure businesses always have access.

Please avoid parking in your driveway when it is being repaired to provide maximum access to the construction crew. The construction crew will knock on your door before work on your driveway begins. If you will not be home weekdays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. during driveway paving, please do not leave any vehicles in the driveway.

Once the driveway is repaired, it is important to avoid driving on the new asphalt for the first three hours afterwards, and to avoid parking on the new asphalt for one day. To provide an alternate parking location, we have obtained a parking permit from the City of Mississauga for any vehicles that will need to park on the street overnight on Nashua Drive. Please note that all other parking laws remain in place, including proper clearance from hydrants and stop signs.

Please email construction@peelregion.ca if you have special needs related to driveway access.

Road repairs

We will repair the road where it was disturbed by our recent watermain construction. We expect these paving activities to begin around the week of May 30th, weather permitting. We will provide a separate notice with more details on road paving closer to the date.

Warranty on construction repairs

All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.

It is normal for repaired areas to settle a bit in the coming months. If you notice large potholes forming in the driveway, street, lawn or boulevard, please let us know and we will ensure the contractor fixes this before the end of the warranty period.

Safety during construction

Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible.
